Poetry Without Borders: Tides of Change

Nov 18, 2014
06:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Foster Auditorium

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, there was 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. The theme of 2014 is “Tides of Change,” an inspiration for the readers to comment with poems on the current political and social events or to reflect on their own spiritual journey.

Sponsored by the Center for Global Studies, the Department of Comparative Literature, the college of Liberal Arts, the Woskob Family Endowment in Ukrainian Studies, the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, and the Penn State University Libraries.
