The Comparative Literature Luncheon is a weekly lunchtime gathering of students, faculty, and other members of the Penn State University community. The Luncheon series was established more than half a century ago as venue for bringing distinguished speakers in the Humanities to campus to talk about their work. The Luncheon generally takes place on Mondays at 12:15 and concludes around 1:25 in time for for classes that meet thereafter. Presentations tend to be formal scholarly talks, though we also have less formal discussions and workshops on topics relevant to literary studies. Event schedule and archive of previous lectures may be accessed here: http://complit.la.psu.edu/news-luncheon.shtml Keywords: Comparatist. Complit. Comparative Literature. World Literature.
