The Global Languages and Cultures Cohort is a learning community of Emory undergraduate students who are dedicated to the study of any foreign language currently taught at Emory. Participants will engage in a one-year long engaged discussion, directed by Dr. Ana Catarina Teixeira, on the relevance of translingual and transcultural competence as part of a liberal arts education. Our cohort will bring together students from various language programs at Emory to foster a sense of community of foreign languages learners beyond specific language boundaries and to discuss the benefits and the hurdles of the journey toward translingual and transcultural competence.
