Humanities Council, the Department of English, and the Department of Comparative Literature
The Nassau Literary Review (NassLit) is the second oldest undergraduate literary magazine in the nation and the oldest student publication at Princeton University. As this year marks the Review’s 181st anniversary, its 2023 conference will emphasize diversity and representation in NLR’s historic archives.
Featuring readings and panels by Princeton faculty, alumni, and students from various departments—including English, Creative Writing, Visual Arts, Comparative Literature, Gender & Sexuality Studies, and more—this conference will explore and interrogate issues of race and diversity across NassLit history whilst highlighting the work of traditionally underrepresented groups. Speakers include Sarah M. Anderson (English), A.M. Homes (Creative Writing), Esther Schor (Chair, Humanities Council; English); and Amy Yao (Visual Arts).
Discussions will be based on an archival research project across NassLit publications and will intersect art and literature with social conversations about race, diversity, and writing the human experience.
This event is co-sponsored by the Humanities Council, the Department of English, and the Department of Comparative Literature.
Organized by Rachel Brooks ‘25 and Annie Cao ‘25
