WSCC - 4C-4

Session Information

Description: Transcending its immediate condition of production and moving across geographies, languages, and traditions, literature has always thrived across borders. Members of this panel will consider what this crossing of borders means in our rethinking of artistic production, scholarship, and what it means to be human.
