This program will involve a public screening of the award-winning 2007 Polish film Katyn, which offers a dramatic recreation and exploration of the murder of over 21,000 Polish prisoners in 1940 by the Soviet secret police. The truth of what happened at Katyn was deliberately distorted by the Soviet state and others for 50 years, and weighs heavily on Russo-Polish relations to the present day. The showing of the film is timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the massacre.
“Sent Out to Serve: North Carolina Women Missionaries, 1872-1992” will be on display March through December 2015. The exhibit was curated by Dr. Laureen Tedesco, Department of English, and Melanie Koerber, English Education Program, along with the staff of the Special Collections department.
A lecture on Thursday, April 9, 2015, will feature a presentation by Ed and Catherine McGuckin. “Thirty Years with the Gapapaiwa: Bible Translations in Papua New Guinea” will begin at 3:30pm in the Janice Hardison Faulkner Gallery on the second floor of Joyner Library. This is a Wellness Passport event.
