"Philip Roth: A Global Perspective"

The past decade has witnessed Roth's canonization as an American classic.
This seminar is dedicated to examining his impact from a comparative
perspective. Panels will engage issues pertaining to Roth in translation
and his reception in other parts of the world; his novels read alongside
international authors (some possible examples: Dostoevsky, Céline, Kundera,
Bernhard, Appelfeld, O’Brien) or vis-à-vis the visual arts (Rembrandt,
Guston, Freud, Kitaj).

Please submit your abstract and a brief biography by November 10 at Selected applicants will be notified by
November 16.
