(MLA) Annual Convention, 7-10 Jan. 2016, in Austin.
"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978
"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
— Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology
In a world that is both rapidly urbanising and globalising, it is widely acknowledged that it is crucial to facilitate urban education that is based on global knowledge and addresses international issues.

Kerouac proclaims in his 1960 essay "The Vanishing Hobo" that cultural practices have made the American landscape inhospitable to the long-cherished tramp in literature and life. Despite this claim, the hobo continues to exhibit a cultural unconscious onto American narratives well into the present. This session aims to explore the hobo as 'he' becomes a special kind of subject in the twentieth century, breaking apart from early-century labor politics to become a transitional figure of individualistic and opportunistic strategies.
