Call for Papers: Silence and Documentation
Simon Fraser University English Graduate Conference
July 10-11 2015
"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
2nd International Conference of the University of Banja Luka (BiH) in cooperation with Institute of English Studies, University of London (UK)

Studies of the global, the transnational, the cross-cultural and the postcolonial have (re-)emerged in recent years as part of a broader interest in the ways we speak to each other across and within boundaries of space and time. The term "cosmopolitan" is one that can be used to capture the divergent meanings raised by these in different contexts – "in its wide and wavering nets," Carol Breckenridge has argued, cosmopolitanism "catches something of our need to ground our sense of mutuality in conditions of mutability, and to learn to live tenaciously in terrains of historic and cultural transition" (Cosmopolitanism).
