Global Literature: How Learning About "Over There" Helps Us Understand "Over Here"
Presented by Anu Taranath, University of Washington Professor
Monday, February 27, 2012, 12 noon

Literature from around the globe helps us picture people "over there" and brings texture and depth to our lives "over here". Examples from global literature will be used to suggest ways of reading that invite conversation on often difficult topics of power, privilege, voice and agency.
