De Santi to present at several venues in March

Dr. Chiara De Santi

Dr. Chiara De Santi, a Department of World Languages and Cultures lecturer, will run a 50-minute workshop on “Learn a World Language through Its Gastronomy: Cook it!” at the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers Annual conference in Rochester, N.Y., on March 11.

With Fredonia Adjunct Lecturer Mary Margaret Fogarty serving as host, the workshop is aimed at bringing language teachers a step forward in their teaching, combining language and gastronomy in a sensory experience that helps their students to learn languages and cultures through a global dimension.

Dr. De Santi will also participate at the next Northeast Modern Language Association conference in Baltimore, Md., where she will organize two roundtables with nine presenters devoted to “Teaching Italian Culture through Film” on March 25. She will also present in two distinctive sessions respectively, on teaching Italian Women in Film as an Honors Seminar, and on teaching Italian food culture in practice, presentations springing forth from two courses taught at Fredonia.

Her final presentation will be on exploring options for Italian studies programs in a changing America at the American Association for Italian Studies and Canadian Association for Italian Studies joint conference on April 21 at Ohio State University. At the same conference, Dr. De Santi will also chair and participate in a panel devoted to teaching Italian culture through gastronomy.
