Event Details

What is literature? What does literature do to our mind, our life, and our society? And how should we read it? The answer seems more complex than we assume.


In the program from August 9 to 13, we will explore these questions by focusing on five dimensions of the verbal art: imagination, communication, representation, emotion, and illumination. Through the program, participants will develop a new critical understanding of the role of the written word in the today's world of mass media.
