just a quick addendum for another event that popped up:
Ku●lit: Asian Literature for the Language Classroom
When: Thu 7 Nov 830-930pm
Where: Festival Pavilion, Campus Green, SMU
Who: Panel including Robert Yeo and Joshua Ip moderated by Dennis Yeo
What: “Ku●lit” is derivative of “wayang kulit” (Indonesian shadow puppet theatre), so we may be inclined to think that the word means “shadow” even though it actually refers to “skin”, or the leather used for the puppets. Likewise, words are shadows cast by reality, representing and manifesting what lies beyond their meanings. Find out how Ku●lit, a joint publication between NAC and Pearson Education South Asia, can stoke interest in the “cool lit” of Singapore and our Asian neighbours so that literature remains relevant in the study of the English language.
