Seminar: “Literary Spaces and Questions of Genre”
Seminar Co-chairs: Barish Ali and Caroline Hagood

~~~

With the increasing effacement of borders in a postnational era, how does

space? How are these new spaces -- literal and figurative -- represented in
contemporary literature, theory, and philosophy? What is the space that the
text occupies? How are these texts distributed?
