      David Cooper will talk about Slovak tales collected in the early 1800s,
      and about the challenging task of bringing them to the American audience.
      He served in the Peace Corps in Slovakia as an English teacher from
      1992-94. He taught Slovak language and culture at Penn State University
      in 1994-95. Currently he is a Ph.D. candidate in Slavic literatures at
      Columbia University. His translation, Traditional Slovak Folktales, was
      published by M.E. Sharpe in 2001.

      You are invited to an informal reception after the presentation.
