SCHOLAR TO EXPLORE IMAGERY OF FRANZ KAFKA IN TALK SEPT. 8

Susan Wansink, professor of German at Virginia Wesleyan College, will discuss "Franz Kafka: Short Prose and Kafkaesque Films" at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, in room 155 of the Education Building.

The talk is sponsored by the Old Dominion University Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. It is free and open to the public.

Wansink's talk will explore how Franz Kafka's voice and vision have become emblematic for the uncanny and macabre side of European modernism. Alienation, disorientation, loss of identity, and an often grotesque transformation of reality are the hallmarks of his haunted landscapes. She will illuminate Kafka's dark imagery through a variety of short texts and film clips.
