Previous Co-sponsorships Events

  1. Join us for a special lunchtime event with Dr. Karen Korematsu, Executive Director of the Fred T. Korematsu Institute, to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the historic Korematsu V. United States Supreme Court ruling sanctioning the incarceration of thousands of Japanese people during WWII.
  2. Kareem Abdulrahman’s talk is dedicated to discussing the novel, but also his journey in literary translation, which, like most activities Kurds undertake, could potentially become a political act. He will probe questions such as: Where do the politics of publishing and those of the Middle East collide? Is literary translation a means to put the Kurds, the largest minority group without their own nation state, on the world’s cultural map? In this sense, is a translator also an activist? What unique challenges do translators of Kurdish texts face?
  3. Join the Department of Theatre & Dance for a film screening and conversation with artists from Dancing Through Prison Walls.
