School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell
Summer 2015 Application

Institute for World Literature Program in Portugal
Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Crowe Hall 4-130

The Critical Theory Cluster awards funding, through The Graduate School, to one NU graduate student per year so that she or he may attend the SCT at Cornell University. This will be an information session for graduate students interested in attending the School of Criticism and Theory in summer 2015.
Professor Anna Parkinson (CTC member and former SCT attendee) will explain the application process for the Critical Theory Cluster SCT Graduate Fellowship for 2015.
Sam Tenorio (Department of African American Studies), the successful applicant for the SCT Graduate Fellowship in 2014, will provide an overview of her experiences in the program and answer any questions.
The Institute for World Literature (IWL) has been created to explore the study of literature in a globalizing world. As we enter the twenty-first century, our understanding of "world literature" has expanded beyond the classic canon of European materpieces and entered a far-reaching inquiry into the variety of the world's literary cultures and their distinctive reflections and refractions of the political, economic, and religious forces sweeping the globe. Meeting for four weeks each summer, the IWL seeks to offer traning in world literature in global perspective, and to provide the basis for ongoing community and exchange long after each session ends.
Sonia Li, PhD candidate in Comparative Literary Studies will discuss her experience at the Institute for World Literature program in Hong Kong this past summer. She will help explain the application process and answer any questions.
Please RSVP for the event by Wednesday, November 5th to Saein Park at: s.park@u.northwestern.edu
Lunch will be served.
