I am convinced that fellows like me who live in dark cellars must be kept

years and never open their mouths, but the moment they get into the light
of day and break out they may talk and talk and talk…

The City as a Space of Exile Panel- NeMLA 2009 (09/20/08;NeMLA, 02/26/09-03/01/09)

The session will examine texts that present the city as a space of exile, be it Paris as viewed by
Polish World War II exiles or by Latin American writers seeking refuge from the horrors of
dictatorships or New York as seen by immigrants. The text can be fiction, poetry, song, essay or
letters and personal accounts of the encounters with a city â€" a place of exile. The text, however, has
to reveal a city whose design is not limited to a mere geographical reference and whose function is
not confined to a static setting.
