Symposium on Literature and Exile
In this age of globalization and political unrest, which drives writers and entire communities out of their native soil, the work of expatriate writers, the idea of exile itself, is becoming more and more relevant. The Symposium on Literature and Exile brings to campus expatriate authors and scholars specializing in diasporic history and culture. The symposium aims to invigorate collaborative discussion among faculty and students in diverse humanities departments and programs at UGA, while exposing the university and local community to a multicultural, international, and multilingual environment.
