CONSIDER A MAJOR (or minor) in COMPARATIVE LITERATURE!
We are holding a special dinner sponsored by the Humanities and Sciences at Stanford to give undergraduates a chance to speak with faculty, advisors and fellow undergraduates about opportunities in Comparative Literature. To RSVP, follow the link below:
This event will take place:
Tuesday, April 29th, 2008 6:00pm, Terrace Room in Margaret Jacks Hall
And will feature: Russell Berman, Department Chair, Andrea Nightingale, Director of Undergraduate Studies and Todd Kuebler, Undergraduate Student Affairs Officer. There will be some handouts with information on the department at the dinner. The major is an exciting venture, with 40 units of flexible electives, a subject matter approach guided by your personal interests and advised by experienced faculty, an optional module in the digital humanities, and an honors program! No second-language is required; texts are considered in English but originate from a multitude of cultural contexts and geographies.
Don't forget to RSVP, and we hope to see you there!
