Words Without Borders

Words Without Borders is an “online magazine for international literature,” started by an editor at Norton.  Click here for their “About Us” page.

In their recent newsletter, I noted two opportunities for engagement.

Speaking of Books
WWB is looking for a volunteer book editor to assign and edit two to three book reviews per month. Send CVs, clips, and three suggestions for current review possibilities to wwbinfo (at) gmail (dot) com.

Calling All Experts
WWB is seeking volunteer regional editors to keep us abreast of current literary trends and new writers around the world. We’re looking for academics, students, cultural journalists, and other specialists, here and abroad, to advise us on expanding our coverage. Requirements include on-the-ground experience, a sound overview of the work coming out of the region, and a passion for local literature. Send CVs, a list of your areas of expertise and favorite authors, and three suggestions for writers to pursue to wwbinfo (at) gmail (dot) com.


21st Congressional District Candidates Forum

On Monday, Oct. 13, the law school’s student Democrat and Republican organizations will host a 21st Congressional District Candidates Forum at 6 p.m. in the Dean Alexander Moot Court Room. The district’s two actively campaigning candidates, Jim Buhrmaster and Paul Tonko, will each make a five-minute opening statement before engaging in an hour-long moderated discussion. The candidates will field questions from the audience after the discussion, and light refreshments will follow the event. The event will be moderated by Al Roney of 810 WGY.

The event is free and open to the public. Albany Law School does not endorse or oppose any candidate or political party. Both events are intended to be neutral events where political fundraising is prohibited. For more information, visit www.albanylaw.edu/events.
