Eighteen countries’ scholars learn about U.S. literature at institute


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Its sessions may resemble a mini-United Nations, but the subject of a six-week summer institute at University of Louisville will be contemporary U.S. literature of all varieties.

    Eighteen scholars who teach the subject in their nations will attend the June 19-Aug. 1 program, which UofL’s Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society presents through a U.S. State Department grant.
