It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

This panel aims to explore the role of futuristic bodies as spaces for addressing contemporary issues such as gender and race equity, climate change, and income inequality. Science fiction and speculative fiction confront us with the uncanny, asking us to question the boundaries between our reality and fictional-yet-possible futures. Centering the body, often porous and precarious, in these texts positions us to imagine the future of humanity, and encourages us to think critically about perspective shifts we must make today to enable a better tomorrow. As Michel Foucault (1980) states, “the body is given meaning and wholly constituted by discourse.
What is the translator’s place within a body of literature, and how do we, as translators, navigate our place? How do translators share space with authors, editors, and audiences? Place is not only static, but dynamic: just as languages do not remain fixed in place, the place of translation is also constantly shifting and evolving. How does translation sit within and move across visible boundaries and invisible barriers? In what ways are we as translators grounded and supported, and in what ways are we trying to break free from what is deemed to be our place?
Literary theory has contributed towards the recovery of marginalised narratives and discourses in literature during the last three decades. The word, ‘minor’ has acquired a resonance of its own in the context of ‘national’ literature which tends to be part of a ‘great tradition’. Against such a background, the recovery of diverse indigenous traditions has become an important task of comparative studies of literature. Nations emerged as ‘imagined’ communities. However, nation-states were not ‘imagined’ in the crucible of prolonged struggles of anti-colonial resistance in Asia, Africa and Latin America, but were born of the political exigencies of imperial powers.

As the first speaker of the conference, Catherine Grant described the challenges of this then new scholarly format as "unknown, infinite, or variable" in terms of the experimentation of video production and the reception of this format in academia.
