The South Florida Irish Film Festival (SFIFF) is an annual event jointly sponsored by the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Science, the Alvin Sherman Library and Research Center, and the South Florida Irish Studies Consortium. SFIFF has been a consistent feature on NSU’s annual calendar of events since 2007. Every November SFIFF presents a collection of independent Irish films that showcase the work of both established and emerging Irish filmmakers. SFIFF Director, Dr. David Kilroy, works with the Irish Film Institute in Dublin, Ireland, to identify the line-up of films for each years’ festival. A mix of documentaries and feature length films, the annual selections for SFIFF are chosen with the view to highlighting cultural, historical, and political issues of moment in contemporary Ireland.

The Stolzenberg-Doan Endowment Fund was established in 2007 through a generous gift from Dr. James Doan, a professor in the Department of Literature and Modern Languages at NSU. The endowment was created with a view to supporting and fostering the growth of international studies at Nova Southeastern University. The endowment supports the annual Stolzenberg-Doan International Studies Lecture, hosted by the Department of History and Political Science, as well as a number of scholarship awards granted annually to students in support of their participation in travel study courses or study abroad programs. Since its creation, approximately seventy students have received Stolzenberg-Doan Scholarships, which help to fund their educational experience overseas.

Story Booth is a series hosted by the Department of Literature and Modern Languages (DLML) that fosters community and diverse cultural and social expressions through an understanding and appreciation of global literatures and languages. Stories are universal and they help us to make sense of the world by sharing our experiences. DLML’s Story Booth partners with student organizations across the university to hear how each of us makes meaning. From remembering our first stories to conversations about the power, good and bad, of fiction, Story Booth connects us. What’s your story?
