New William H. Gass fellowship and PhD track for international writers
The Ampersand recently featured an article about professor emeritus William H. Gass, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday. Comparative Literature director Lynne Tatlock spoke about Gass's literary influence, quoting Matthias Göritz, the first reipient of the William H. Gass fellowship who said, “I admire Gass as an essayist, translator, and storyteller; I admire him as a teacher. My colleagues across the globe and I see him as a legend. After reading his work, people are ‘infected’ and changed. It’s simple: we have to read William Gass; otherwise we’ve missed the best. I’m proud and grateful to be recognized as the first William Gass fellow. And thus not to miss the best.”
