Hi everyone,

I need your help. I will be attending the Institute of World Literature this summer in Hong Kong and Vanderbilt has generously agreed to cover the cost of tuition, but the travel, housing, and living expenses are my own. I plan to apply for grants and additional funding, but in total I need at least 5,000 dollars to fund my trip. I'm incredibly excited about this opportunity and I've included details about the Summer 2014 program below so that you can learn more about what I'll be up to while I'm there. Any help and support is very much appreciated. Thank you all: 

The Institute will hold its fourth summer school session from June 23 through July 17, 2014, at City University of Hong Kong. We have prepared an ambitious four-week program that includes two sets of six two-week seminars taught by leading names in world literature today, together with outstanding guest lectures and opportunities for participants to share their work in affinity groups, as well as panels on pedagogy, program development, publishing, and the job market. The program will be supplemented by outings and cultural events to build community beyond the boundaries of the formal sessions. Our participants will have the chance to examine critically the latest challenges of this comprehensive and rapidly developing field, from its theoretical concepts and the history of the discipline to its forms of practice today embedded in a world market. Our seminars will be taught by a mix of distinguished senior faculty and innovative younger scholars of world literature.
