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.

Almost unknown before the première of En attendant Godot in 1953, the immediate success of the play led to Samuel Beckett very quickly acquiring an international reputation. Since then, his works have been translated into numerous languages, and have exerted a considerable influence upon art and literature across the world. The award of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969 confirmed Beckett's status as a major figure in world literature.
