While it seems as though the Euro-American culture is everywhere globally—from television shows to fast food restaurants, international trade treaties to sanctions and strikes—this conference explores how it actually gets translated, interrogated, adapted, and even re-defined, as it appears in localized contexts across the globe. This conference is interested in scholarship that explores general concerns of global translations of national and regional cultures and subcultures.

Writing Resistance (Guaranteed panel, MLA 2017, 5-8 January, Philadelphia, PA)

MLA Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature

The Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature is soliciting papers on the topic of historical approaches to "writing resistance" or "writing rebellion". We construe the topic broadly to encompass the narrative construction of historical incidents of resistance, but also the practice of writing history as a form of resistance, or, in yet another vein, the resistance to historico-literary approaches in our discipline. Papers that problematize the location of historical practice (Global North or South, for example) are also of interest. Furthermore, we welcome papers that address different media, including film and the digital, as well as papers that address material from a broad historical span.

Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and translation. As the title for the conference suggests, the aim is to highlight the relationship between global themes and local practices. The focus thus is on the under-examined interactions that occur as globalization takes on negotiated forms in different contexts.
