Visiting Scholar Rebecca Walkowitz Comes to Campus

The College of Saint Rose presents the 2010-2011 English Department Visiting Scholar Rebecca Walkowitz, Associate Professor of English at Rutgers University, on February 23, 2011 at 6:30 p.m., in the Carondelet Symposium, Lally Hall, 1009 Madison Ave. Albany, NY 12203.

She will deliver a talk entitled “Born-Translated and Born-Digital: Comparative Writing in an Age of Electronic Literature.”

Walkowitz describes her focus as tying in well with theoretical readings on world literature, theories of translation, the history of the book and ‘authorship,’ and the relationship between the history of the novel and the conception of political communities.

This event is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the English Department and the School of Arts and Humanities.

Walkowitz will also be participating in an informal discussion on Feb. 23rd  in ENG 115 Introduction to Film and New Media Studies from 5-5:55pm in CCIM 121. Faculty and students are welcome to attend this discussion too.
