DescriptionLeah Feldman will be talking about her prospective project rethinking hospitality as a critical interdisciplinary and comparative practice and the role of literature in negotiating and modeling community structures.

Ana Ilievska will be talking about how sound and noise associated with cities and machines entered prose fiction in Italy and Portugal at the turn of the twentieth-century, and began supplementing structures of space and image as organizing principles of narrative.

The colloquium is a forum for free, non-hierarchical exchange of ideas among all members of the Department of Comparative Literature. The colloquium meets every first Friday of the month to discuss prospective, current, or recently finished work, with a particular focus on comparative methodology. The double presentations are limited to 20 minutes each and are delivered in an informal, conversational style—not read from paper. Each talk is followed by a 30-minute conversation, with a 10-minute tea break between the two talks.
Persons with disabilities who need an accommodation in order to participate in this event should contact the event sponsor for assistance.
