Enhancing the Comprehension, Appreciation and Teaching of Western Literature: from Homer to Shakespeare at HBCUs

A month-long summer program of study of Homer, Dante, Marie de France, Christine de Pizan, and Shakespeare for six to eight faculty members at Grambling and participants selected from neighboring Historically Black College and Universities.

Our month-long program is designed to enhance the comprehension, appreciation and teaching of world literature by exposing teachers from historically black colleges and universities like Grambling State University, Southern University at Baton Rouge, and Xavier University to nationally recognized scholars from elitte institutions like UC-Berkeley, Dartmouth, Barnard, Rice, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Kentucky at Lexington, and the University of Chicago. Major scholars from major institutions have agreed to lead sessions on important figures from the western canon: Homer, Dante, Christine de Pizan, and Shakespeare.
