World Lit Discussion in Philadelphia

Editors Nikil Saval and Marco Roth will discuss world literature and potential alternatives with University of Pennsylvania English and comparative literature professor Jean-Michel Rabaté and moderator Shaj Mathew on January 30 in Philadelphia.

What’s Wrong with World Literature?
6 PM, Thursday, January 30
Slought Foundation, 4017 Walnut Street

The conversation “will take ‘World Lite’ [Issue 17] as a starting point and will explore alternatives to World Literature-—including a more politically charged internationalist literature that is more project than product—-while also addressing criticisms of the piece.”
