As a part of #WKU19, potential freshmen are invited to attend the FUTURE HILLTOPPER RECEPTION on Saturday, October 4, 2014. Tour campus, attend informational sessions, and cheer on the Hilltopper football team, all compliments of the WKU Office of Admissions!
See Dr. Gitiata Nasreen, Fullbright Scholar (Howard University), speak on Whitewashing the Color Politics: The "Unfair" Construction of Beauty for the (Market) Beast.
A fixed definition of beauty tied to pale skin has been reinforced and perpetuated globally by the expanding cosmetics industry and omnipresent commercials. A 2011 report of the World Health Organization reveals that women (and some men) of quite a few countries of the world use fairnedd products on a regular basis.
Dr. Nasreen will explore different dimenstions involed in skin-whitening product commercials. Based on textual analysis of relevant TV commercials, secondary data, and the author's experience of campaigning against whiteness products in Bangladesh, this presentation reveals the complexities of ad marratives in a globalized cultural context.
Presented by the Institute for Citizenship & Social Responsibility. Reception to Follow.

Introducing Guest Conductor Kelly Corcoran of the Nashville Symphony
Barber: Music for a scene from Shelley
Walton: Concerto for Violin
Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 5 in D Major
“England” is the theme, even though Barber himself is an American. Spectacular and beautiful music, some of which is rarely performed. The Vaughan Williams piece is stunning, ending on a serene, beautiful, ascending note of peace.
