CFP: [General] ACLA 2008: With or against the flow: Conversation and Movement

Monday, November 12, 2007 - 3:32am
Barbara van Feggelen

Join one of the panels at the ACLA conference 2008!!

With or Against the Flow: Conversation and Movement

This panel examines the way in which the social spaces of conversation
that have characterized our social, cultural and political history and
their representations have always depended on the phenomenon of movement.
For not only do the salon, the cafe, and other such social groups allow
for a great number of arrivals and departures from people with different
nationalities, they are also the archetypal space for a collectivity of
language based on the traveling of words and ideas.
