Poetry Without Borders

Poetry Without Borders is an annual, university-wide, student-run poetry reading forum where students and faculty expose the audience to different languages and cultures. The event aims to bring together people with different backgrounds and passions. In the past, we had contributions from languages such as German, Chinese, Mongolian, Kazakhs, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Turkish, Hebrew, Dutch, Russian, Ukrainian, and Portuguese, and students and faculty from different majors and research fields. Attendees will be exposed to hearing different languages and will be positively impacted by this cultural diversity, sharing or finding an interest in foreign cultures and languages. Sponsored by the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, the School of Languages and Literatures, the Department of Comparative Literature, the Center for Global Studies, the Center for Language Science, the Woskob Family Endowment in Ukrainian Studies, and Penn State University Libraries.
