WWB Campus: Bringing International Literature into the Classroom

In 2014, Words Without Borders launched an exciting new education program: WWB Campus. Drawing from the magazine's rich archive of contemporary stories, essays, poems, and graphic literature in translation, WWB Campus connects students and educators to eye-opening contemporary writing from across the globe. We present selected texts alongside multimedia contextual materials, ideas for lessons, and pathways for further exploration. Our goal is to create a virtual learning space without borders, fostering meaningful cross-cultural understandings and inspiring a lifelong interest in international literature. We launched the site with units of writing from Mexico, Egypt, and China. New units of Russian and Japanese writing are planned for 2016.

We are currently pilot testing the new Web site in high school and college classrooms world wide. If you are an educator who would like to pilot the program in your classroom, please contact us at [email protected] To receive periodic updates on WWB Campus, please sign up for our education newsletter below.
