Be a Part of the Words Without Borders Education Initiative

In 2014 WWB will launch an exciting new education program: Words without Borders Campus. This sister education site will offer innovative literary assets and resources for use by educators, students, and general readers to explore and learn from international writing and global cultural experiences. WWBC will reorganize and contextualize already published texts, along with new content written by leading scholars, authors, and translators who are specialists in each source language and/or cultural field. The site will be aimed at advanced high school and beginning college level students, but will also be accessible to general readers. For educators, WWBC will offer practical tools needed to incorporate world literature in translation into curricula, course units built around exploring international writing, language, and translation, and practical rubrics and assessment tools.

We'll update readers on our progress. In the meantime, we encourage you to sign up for our WWB Education newsletter. We’ll e-mail only when we have something worth sharing. Signing up below will also give you a membership to our site, which will feature special content for educators when our program launches.
