10:15 AM–11:30 AM Friday, Jan 4, 2019 (US - Central)

Sheraton Grand - Goldcoast

Session Information

Description: Interest in Hungarian literature is on the rise, as more translations of contemporary works become available and bring a fuller recognition of Hungarian culture to the scholarly public. The process contributes to our understanding of world literature. Participants address Hungarian literature in the original, in translation, and as seen through lenses such as folklore, German literature, and gender and class as part of the cultural scene.
