Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 6:35am
Dr Kate Taylor-Jones and Dr Yan Ying. Bangor University WALES UK

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to focus on questions of 'cultural translation' in all its forms and constructs. As global identity becomes increasingly defined by questions of communication across languages and cultures the role of 'translation' becomes key in the forging of new subjectivities.

Topics could include (although are not limited to) :

1. Adaption in literature, film and media

2. Interplay between East Asian nations

3. Construction of 'East Asia' as a theoretical/political/cultural concept

4. A focus on the interplay between 'East Asia' and the 'West'

5. Global Dissemination of East Asian Popular Culture.

updated: 
Monday, December 5, 2011 - 10:06pm
Second Annual University of Houston Graduate Literature Conference March 31, 2012

Between the recession, partisan rhetoric about class war, and the current Occupy movement, class has moved to the forefront of American political consciousness. Class is also something we can't avoid in the academy--whether we're talking about the relative place of men and women (Schell); WPAs, professors, and TAs (Bousquet, Scott); literature and composition (Miller); the university and the community (Mathieu); undergraduate students; or the literary canon and authors that we study. This is a kairotic moment to reexamine our assumptions about class and look more deeply at the class implications in our literature, our languages, our classrooms, and our communities.
