  • from Greek to Arabic: Highlights of the History of Foreign Languages at Williams

    from Greek to Arabic

    Language education at Williams has a rich history of steady progression, constantly evolving to reflect the circumstances of each time period. The exhibit traces the trajectory of language study at the College from its earliest beginnings to its most recent developments, as outlined in the wall timeline. The table display cases delve into further detail and highlight a few professors, students, the curriculum, activities, and location in the different time periods. The wall monitor features quotes from five of the twenty remaining alumni who majored in languages before 1954. The computer terminal presents the timeline of language study at the College, offers additional visual information on language-learning tools, and features our current language programs.
