elcome to the Fall 2013 issue of Global Voices, the News and Events pages for the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the College of William & Mary. This issue features our wonderful faculty members and the work they’re doing with students and in their own research. Many of our stories this issue focus on new faculty publications, our study abroad programs and the research we do in foreign countries, and lots more. Below is a slideshow of our Modern Languages and Literatures Homecoming Reception, held on Friday, October 25 on the rooftop terrace of the Cohen Career Center, located adjacent to the Sadler Center. We had quite a few returning alumni, including some folks from the Class of ’78, who had a mini-reunion and got together to take a few pictures as well. Scroll down past the slideshow to check out our stories for this semester.
