Visiting professor Sophie Xu will present on Alice Munro and China at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, in room 1313 of Jamrich Hall. The presentation is part of the English Faculty Research Colloquium.
Munro is a critically acclaimed author of contemporary Canadian literature who received a Nobel Prize in 2013. Xu’s presentation will illustrate Munro’s “in-betweenness” with several stories from her novels. Xu will compare the similar situation between Canadian women and Chinese women who have been influenced by Confucianism for thousands of years.
