Works in Progress: A Graduate Student Symposium Series
Two current graduate students, Amy Braun and Deniz Gundogan-Ibrisim, will present their work. A faculty member, Erin McGlothlin (Associate Professor of German), will facilitate the event. Please come support your peers and then join faculty and students for the end-of-the-semester interdepartmental social gathering, to take place afterward. Amy's talk is entitled "Constructing Monstrosity in the Prague German Gothic: Nationalism, Degeneration, and Human Atavism in Gustav Meyrink's Der Golem (1915)." Deniz's talk is entitled "Reading Violence and Trauma through Storytelling in Achmat Dangor's Kafka's Curse and Burhan Sonmez's Istanbul Istanbul."
About the series: "Works-in-Progress” is a series of events for graduate students in Comparative Literature to share their work. Each event will consist of two graduate students who will each present a paper and then allow for time for questions. If you have a paper you’d like to present at a future “Works-in-Progress” event, please let Rebecca O'Laughlin know. Students who are presenting at a conference (or who are considering submitting a paper for consideration at a conference) are especially encouraged to use this forum to practice and get feedback, but everyone is welcome to share your work.
