ALUMNI UPDATE: Eric Darton '64

This past year I launched, in collaboration with two co-editors, an online journal of world literature called The Wall (

The Wall features a good deal of work in translation, with the English version next to the original language, if possible. In addition to writing in all genres, each issue contains a portfolio of contemporary visual art. Now on our third issue, The Wall has attracted an international audience of approximately 2,000 readers. I am also continuing to post, bi-weekly, an extended work of independent scholarship, Book of the World Courant  ( Courant explores the relationship between forms of cultural expression (including visual art, written, and spoken language) and systems of political and economic power. It also navigates the seam between Eastern and Western thought, using humor, and an occasional striking visual, for leavening.
