ASU Language Fair 2013
ASU's Language Fair brings hundreds of high school students from across Arizona to the Tempe campus each year. The goal of the fair is to provide high school students with an opportunity to demonstrate their achievements in learning a foreign language, and to give them an incentive to continue their studies in the future. Students also gain insight into a range of cultures and languages via participation in various actvities. Prior registration is required.
This year's theme is "International Arts and Humanities."
"The term 'humanities' includes, but is not limited to, the study and interpretation of the following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history, criticism and theory of the arts; those aspects of social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life." --National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act, 1965, as amended.
