World Literature Today is an independent, not-for-profit publication sponsored by the University of Oklahoma, a doctoral degree-granting research university serving the educational, cultural, and economic needs of the state, region, and nation. From its campus base in Norman, Oklahoma, WLT administers the prestigious Neustadt International Prize for Literature, the NSK Neustadt Prize for Children's Literature, and the Puterbaugh Conferences on World Literature. These programs bring to campus such world-class authors as Adam Zagajewski, Claribel Alegría, Orhan Pamuk, and Patricia Grace, and these authors engage with students, professors, and other avid readers. The activity of WLT as a campus humanities center, in turn, enriches the magazine. The synergy among our authors, professional editors, humanities faculty, and student editors brings fresh ideas and new energy to the magazine – and keeps WLT at the cutting edge of cultural developments and important global issues.
