Ready for the World Cup? Prontos pra Copa do Mundo? ¿Listos para el mundial?

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

It only comes around once every four years - the cheering crowds, the national unity, the glory of the win and the agony of defeat.

It's time for the FIFA World Cup. This year, the soccer tournament will be held in Brazil.

From June 12 to July 13, eyes around the world will be glued to television screens around the world as millions upon millions will tune in to watch the most important tournament in the world's most popular sport. A number of national teams from Latin America have qualified for the tournament: Argentina, host country Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico and Uruguay.

Whether you are a hardcore fan of a national team, or a relative soccer neophyte, we at CLACS wanted to make it easy for everyone to find a way to watch a game and participate in this important cultural event. We have compiled a list of restaurants and bars in Lawrence that have indicated they will be showing the games. BRASA, the Brazilian Student Association at KU, will be hosting watch parties as part of the organization's summer schedule. We have also created a PDF schedule of all the games (Central Time Zone) so you won't miss a match!

We are excited to announce that our first educator workshop of the year will focus on Brazil! The workshop will take place Saturday, September 13th from 9:30 – 4:00 at the Spencer Museum of Art. It includes a light breakfast and a Brazilian-inspired lunch. The day’s agenda includes: • Brazil 101: An Overview of Brazilian Culture, History, Language, and Education • Social and Environmental Movements in Brazil, including an interactive skype session with activists on the ground in Brazil • Panel with exchange students (KU Students who studied in Brazil and Brazilian Students who are studying at KU) • Film Screening: Award-winning film Wasteland with discussion about art and film as a lens into other cultures and to highlight social issues. PLUS: We invite you to join BRASA, the Brazilian Student Association at KU for happy hour drinks in downtown Lawrence after the event! We hope you can join us for what promises to be an educational and fun day of learning and networking! Please invite your colleagues and interested students to join you for this FREE workshop!
