Broadcasting World Literature is an opportunity to look at, think about, discuss, and listen to new perspectives on the world that you may not have known about. This show is a way to share stories and ask questions of/about power, purpose, beauty, and resistance. In every episode we discuss a new facet of what World Literature is, how it is organized, who it serves, and why it is important in the first place. Sometimes we will just read and enjoy powerful poetry, other times we will discuss the politics of writing--the possibilities are endless! Whatever we chat about, our goal is to make connections between people, places, ideas, and listeners! Tune in to WHRW every Monday, 5:30-6 PM (EST) .

This project is funded through the IASH Public Humanities Initiative.
