Guests

Every year the Department of American Literature and Culture, the Department of American Studies and the Canadian Studies Department host lectures by visiting American scholars, critics, and writers, who are invited to speak or read at UMCS on a variety of topics. Arranged either by way of the generous support of the Cultural Unit of the American Embassy, the Polish-US Fulbright Commission, or personal networking of department members, these lectures have become a distinctive feature of the American Studies Program. American Studies specialists from other countries, including Germany, England, Sweden, Canada, and Japan, have also been guests on campus.
