This seminar will discuss the impact of globalization on anglophone cultures by focusing on the emergence of so called "global novels" and by charting the patterns of their dissemination and their inclusion as new cultural capital in literary studies worldwide. By situating such novels in the context of a series of irreversible changes currently investing the relation between literature and nationality, we aim at bringing new light on the cultural significance of novels written in English across the globe.

The next issue of Trickster will deal with language. In the attempt to break the boundaries of disciplines (an absolute necessity for both cross-cultural theory and practice) our latest editorial mission has been to create an open and collective space for the delivery and the reception of speech.

Language, we believe, is a site of self- revelation and the ownership of what we are used to labelling as someone's own language is hard to prove.

Can we disagree? The question forces you to answer 'yes' or 'no,' to commit to one path or the other. Perhaps it even forces you to choose your allies, to prepare for combat.

If we can disagree, how do we do this? Why the desire to disagree in the first place? This questioning asks us to examine the epistemological and material conditions of disagreement; the possibility of dialogue and understanding; the relationship between eristic and dialectic; the role and function of polemos; and the relation between negation, negativity, difference and disagreement.
