This exhibition examines both the institutional teaching and personal research of Eugene Chen Eoyang, Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature and East Asian Languages and Cultures at Indiana University. Dr. Eoyang taught at IU for more than twenty years, five of which he spent as the director of the East Asian Summer Language Institute, which he founded in 1985. He also formerly served as a board member and chair of the Kinsey Institute. Through a variety of formats such as photographs, presentation notecards, and correspondence, the exhibit provides an inside look into the diverse work and outreach of an internationally renowned scholar, particularly in the areas of translation theory and practice, Chinese literature, Chinese-Western literary relations, globalization, cross-cultural studies, and literary theory.
