We also welcome support for the Michael Heim Memorial Lecture in Translation Distinguished Studies fund, which will contribute to fund an annual lecture in memory of Michael Heim and continue his legacy. Professor Heim was a pioneer in translation studies, which is now an area of considerable significance to the field of comparative literature. He is remembered by his colleagues, students and friends as world-class scholar, a model pedagogue and a devoted mentor, generous in his commitment to a communication and understanding across languages and cultures, giving pride of place to translation.

I invite you to visit our Giving Opportunities page to learn more about how to give to the department.

On behalf of the Department of Comparative Literature, thank you for your interest, generosity and support in our pursuit of excellence, in teaching, research and service.
