For the week of May 7th, 2018

(click to jump)

Rethink your syllabus as a website! We'll be presenting on "The Benefits of Using Syllabi Websites for Large Courses" at this year's Faculty Summer Institute at UIUC on 5/16 and would be happy to help you figure out how a syllabus website could help your course - big or small.

Dear Faculty, Lecturers and TAs,

The LCLC is open during Finals Week! We will be here 9-5 Monday-Thursday and 10-5 on Friday.

We will be closed after this week and re-open during the week leading up to Fall 2018 classes. Over the summer you can still email us at with questions, but we may be slower to respond and our ability to help you may be limited.

There are no conversation or film events this week. If you are a conversation hour or film series organizer and have not yet sent the LCLC your preferred times for next semester, please do so as soon as possible! If you are interested in starting a conversation or film event for your language in the fall, email us -

There will be no workshops this week.

Have tech questions? Email us to set up a meeting - - or stop by.
Remember, we won't be here after this week!

This Week's Featured Chicago-Area Cultural Event

 “Mihbaj” - Thursday, May 10th, 7:00-10:00pm
Watch a gripping play that sheds light on the Syrian tragedy. Near the areas occupied by ISIS in northern Syria, a widow struggles to to keep her three sons together, who represent three conflicting points of view, while an international proxy war spreads sectarianism, extremism, and hatred in a country that was once a harmonic grinder of all religious ethnicities, like a Mihbaj which prepares coffee beans for hospitality.
Location: Instituto Cervantes, 31 W Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60654
