updated: 
Monday, September 14, 2015 - 2:29am
American Comparative Literature Association

The contemporary migrant crisis in Europe, the rise of Islamophobia, and the increasing presence of right-wing activism are resurrecting specters of colonialism, racism, and religious prejudice. How do these alarming phenomena possibly affect the idea of national literatures, area studies, cultural studies, diaspora, migration or exile studies, and the definition of European territoriality itself?

CFP: Languages, Cultures and Gender (11-13 May 2016) Ege University, Izmir/TURKEY

updated: 
Sunday, September 13, 2015 - 2:21pm
Ege University, Izmir/TURKEY

The conference theme covers issues relating to gender with special emphasis on how language and culture defines, affects, influences, shapes and visualises gender in a wide spectrum ranging from the individual to the communal across an array of disciplines. Being ideologically, politically and socially constructed, language, culture and gender all intersect at some point. And it is this intersection that we wish to explore comparatively from varying perspectives. Concerned with the HOW and WHY's the aim of the conference is to analyse the content of gender within the very bones of language and culture.

Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
