world literatures and indigenous studies
'This world was unified, first of all, by a common purpose: to provide the corrective of laughter and criticism to all existing straightforward genres, languages, styles, voices, to force men to experience beneath these categories a different and contradictory reality that is otherwise not captured in them.'

International Multi-Disciplinary Conference
April, 23, 24, 25, 2018
The English Department at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities in Kairouan announces a multi-disciplinary international conference on “Flight”.
We have been enduring a long period of crises that are changing the way individuals see themselves and their relationship to others. For instance, the effects of the 2008 economic crisis in Spain have incentivized a reflection on both the bad direction of the country’s politics and on the faulty transition to democracy after Franco’s death in 1975; climate change is not only posing environmental challenges, but also political ones, as the current Puerto Rican crisis demonstrates. Crises change paradigms, and, like in the recent cases of Spain and Puerto Rico, the outcomes are highly unfavorable, leaving victims to suffer their improper management.
