Domnica Radulescu, the Edwin A. Morris Professor of Comparative Literature at W&L, presents her newest co-edited book, “Voices on the Move: An Anthology by and about Refugees,” in a public book launch, presented virtually, on Oct. 23 at 5 p.m.
The launch is open to the public and can be accessed at https://go.wlu.edu/voices-on-the-move.
The multi-genre anthology is a collection of diverse artistic works ranging from poetry to creative fiction and non-fiction, from drama to photography. Most of the contributors to the collection are immigrants, refugees or individuals who have worked with displaced peoples, such as migrants unfairly kept in detention centers or struggling to resettle in their host countries.
Radulescu also held an online public reading for “Voices on the Move” in early October as part of a series hosted by the Romanian Cultural Center. The public can watch the event for free on the center’s Facebook page.
A member of W&L’s faculty since 1992, Radulescu is the author, editor or co-editor of 10 scholarly books, three novels, as well as book chapters, articles and plays. In addition to teaching courses in French language and literature and in Italian Renaissance literature, Radulescu was the co-founding chair of W&L’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program and is the founding organizer and director of the National Symposium of Theater in Academe. She is the recipient of the university’s 2011 Outstanding Faculty Award.
The book is available to purchase at the W&L bookstore, and more information about its content is available on the Solis Press website.
