MLA Special Session proposal - Reconsidering the Transnational Turn - 3/24

updated: 
Tuesday, March 3, 2009 - 1:50pm
John Patrick Leary, Wayne State University

In recent years, a "transnational" approach to literary history has become popular. This approach criticizes the supposed naturalness of some of the borders, boundaries, and binaries that define our political affiliations and have structured—some would argue limited—our cultural histories. The "transnational turn" has taken a variety of forms and includes other mode of cultural critique, like "borderlands" readings and Atlantic world studies. Yet even as the transnational turn has become institutionalized—as indicated by the increasing numbers of English literature job listings advertising this specialty—it still has the ring of an insurgent challenge to national traditions of literary studies.

The increasing international interdependence of regions, firms, and institutions characterizes the world economy. International integration gives countries the opportunity to raise economic welfare while, at the same time, increasing the exposure to shocks from abroad. The aim of the conference is to study the process of international integration, its obstacles, and its implications for economic policies. The conference will be accompanied by a workshop for Ph.D. Students.
