William H. Gass Symposium: International Writing,
scheduled for September 23, 2016
On September 23rd, Washington University Libraries will co-host a symposium to honor William H. Gass’s work in the fields of translation and international writing. The event is scheduled to take place jointly in Washington University’s Umrath Lounge and Olin Library.
The William H. Gass Symposium will feature a presentation from keynote speaker and William H. Matheson lecturer Susan Bernofsky, who serves as director of the Literary Translation program at Columbia University (LTAC). The event will also include a round table discussion with Stephen Schenkenberg who runs the Reading William Gass blog, and Lorin Cuoco, who co-founded the International Writers Center (IWC) with Gass in 1990. Additionally, there will be a reading–including Gass reading Rilke poems–and a reception with interactive exhibits of materials from the IWC Archive.
