Nadeem Aslam’s visa has been so delayed by government scrutiny that it will not be granted in time to enable our October and November events. Our inaugural GW-British Council Writer in Residence will therefore have to be postponed.
We are attempting to reschedule the residency for February. Mr. Aslam is eager to come to GW. Our book club, readings, and lectures will be rescheduled.
The one event we do intend to hold is the special panel on Literature in a Global Age. We will have a variety of presentations by English Department faculty. The event is still scheduled for Friday November 9 at 2 PM in the Marvin Center. Look for an invitation soon by Professor Gil Harris, Director of Undergraduate Study.
