The Comparative World Literature Society (CWLS) at Kenyon is organizing a Comparative World Literature Week with the theme Literature Exceeding Boundaries.
Throughout the week CWLS will hold multi-lingual poetry readings, panels, seminars and cultural events that will give students, faculty and community members the opportunity to learn, discuss and share reserach related to the theme.
The main event of the week will be a lecture given by Professor Rebecca Walkowitz of Rutgers University, a highly acclaimed scholar who wrote multiple books on translation and comparative literature.
This series of events is meant to foster the increasing interest in CWL and create a forum of discussion to interrogate contemporary issues such as cultural identity, immigration and issues of international communication.
