Last year Ulrike Wiethaus connected AES to the Division of Liberal Arts at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Along with Professor Julian Semilian and Rosemary Millar from UNCSA, and Alta Mauro from the Office of Multicultural Affairs, we have organized a series of events that includes class visits, workshops, poetry readings, book-signings, and a performance.
