A work-in-progress discussion with Doug Battersby

Graduate student and faculty respondents from NYU English and NYU Comparative Literature will offer feedback and questions to open up the conversation.
When: 5:30pm; Wednesday October 12, 2022
Where: In person, The Event Space, 244 Greene St. RSVP here to attend.
[Optional: Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to read the introduction and a chapter from the book in advance.]
