The Michael H. Heim Memorial Lecture is held annually to honor the professional achievments and legacy of Dr. Heim, who was a Professor od Slavic Languages & Literatures and pioneer in the field of translation and translation studies.
This year's lecture will be presented by Professor Jonathan Bolton of Harvard University. His research crosses back and forth between literary studies and history. His book Worlds of Dissent combines approaches from both disciplines to offer a new approach to the dissident movements in East Central Europe under Communism. Professor Bolton teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on Czech literature, history, and culture, as well as comparative European literatures more generally.
