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.

The American Camp Association reports some 12,000 summer camps in the United States alone, and there are nearly a thousand more in Canada. While especially popular in North America, summer camp is a global affair. Certain iterations of summer camp loom large in the popular imagination – Scout Camp, band camp, bible camp – but camps engage a staggeringly diverse range of interests and activities, from sports to language learning, computing, forensic science, weight loss, and so forth. Some camps are specialized; some have a general education and/or elective curricular structure.
OXFORD ENGLISH GRADUATE CONFERENCE 3 JUNE 2016: PROGRESS
'When any real progress is made, we learn and unlearn anew what we thought we knew before.'
(Henry David Thoreau)

We see the meanings and consequences of progress translated across world literature, from The Pilgrim's Progress to the Futurist Manifesto; Renaissance Humanism to the Post-Human; from colonialism to postcolonial literature and theory.
