Contemporary Global Literature

Read more about the authors and translators of the books on display at Wofford College's Sandor Teszler Library.


We invite you to explore a world of literature not commonly promoted in the United States: contemporary global literature, especially literature in translation.  Feel free to browse through the books on display at the library and check one or two out to read over break or the weekend.  Think of reading global literature as a way to study abroad from home.

The books on display were generously donated by their small presses working to promote global literature.  The display and the accompanying campus events coming in spring 2017 are brought to Wofford in collaboration with Global Literature in Libraries Initiative.  Read more about the initiative on their website.
