Remote Commencement 2021

This year, Comparative Literature ... held a remote commencement via zoom;  The 90 minute ceremony featured 14 faculty, 16 undergraduates, and 2 graduates and their families participated for a total of approximately 60, and by all measures, it was a great success.  Normally, the department joins with other language departments for a "mega-ceremony" in Zellerbach, but with pandemic and social distancing, we were not able to hold an in-person event; as a result, we held instead a smaller, more personal ceremony, which allows for more commentary by faculty and the opportunity for graduates to speak as well.
