What is the marquette core curriculum?
The Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) sponsors and co-sponsors events related to Core classes throughout the academic year. Check back often to get information about speakers, films, panels, performances, and other events that bring the Core to life. Our calendar also features programs related to issues addressed by the several tiers and themes included in the MCC.

Presented by Dr. Susana Chávez-Silverman, Pomona College
2:00 PM in the Haggerty Museum
Susana Chávez-Silverman, bilingual escritora and professor at Pomona College, will perform her own unique brand of intercultural, introspective yet energetic poesía that pushes the boundaries between Spanish and English. As Ilan Stavans has said, “Susana ChávezSilverman is not a code-switcher but a switch-burner”. Dr. Chávez-Silverman has authored numerous books, including Killer Crónicas: Bilingual Memories, Scenes from la Cuenca de Los Angeles y otros Natural Disasters, and, most recently, Heartthrob: del Balboa Café al Apartheid and Back. A reception will follow the poetry performance.
