30th Annual Fordham Debate
“Be it Resolved: That Aspiring to Be a Superpower is No Longer in the Best Interests of the United States”
What is United States’ proper role in international affairs? Advocates of a more humble role for the U.S. argue that American world dominance is unwise and unsustainable. Conversely, to many people who support active engagement with foreign affairs, it may be that the U.S. is the sole nation with the ability to fill the role as “the world’s policeman.”
Westminster College presents a free reading by poets Fiona Sze-Lorrain and Ranjan Adiga as part of the 2013–2014 Anne Newman Sutton Weeks Poetry Series.
Fiona Sze-Lorrain writes and translates English, Chinese, and French. She was born in Singapore, and educated at Columbia University, New York University, and Paris IV-Sorbonne. Her two collections of poetry are My Funeral Gondola and Water the Moon. She has translated contemporary Chinese poetry and prose, French and American poetry. She is an editor at Vif Éditions, an independent French publishing house in Paris. Also a zheng harpist, she has performed worldwide. fionasze.com
Ranjan Adiga was born and raised in Nepal, and has earned creative writing degrees from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and the University of Hawaii. He writes in English, though it is his second language. His upcoming book is a collection of short stories exploring the nature of desire and tradition in a changing society. His stories have appeared in Story Quarterly, South Asian Review, 34th Parallel, and Nepali Times, among others. Adiga is Westminster’s new faculty member in the English Department.
Since its inception, the Anne Newman Sutton Weeks poetry series has partnered with other organizations to promote contemporary literature in Utah, with a particular focus on bringing new and international poets to the state. We are grateful to the Zoo, Arts, and Parks program for funding and would like to draw your attention to the complete listing of cultural events available at www.nowplayingutah.com.
