The emergence of ‘world literature’ as a critical framework of reading in literary studies has not only recalibrated older methodologies of comparative and postcolonial literature but has also foregrounded the aspect of circulation and reception of literary works in a transnational context. The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.

Atlantic World Arts: Collision, Fusion, Re-Vision
An International, Interdisciplinary Conference
Sponsored by the Atlantic World Research Network and The National Folk Festival
This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.
