Literature: The Global Language (Diversity Index # 8489)

Tue. Nov 14, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm
DH 100

The World Languages area and HCC partner-in-residence HoCoPoLitSo will present and facilitate audience discussion on literature as a “global language,” with immense power to connect, inform, and enlighten us across cultures, geography, and time periods. HCC faculty and staff will read poems as originally written in languages from around the world, followed by an English translation. We will show a series of brief clips from HoCoPoLitSo’s TV show The Writing Life in which writers discuss a variety of works, such as Israeli poems of war and peace, Japanese internment, Latin immigrants, African American history, and issues of translation.
