This roundtable will discuss practices of teaching the literary-cultural portrayal of modern global (ethno)nationalisms and the concurrent rise and proliferation of terrorism as well as the role that the “terror threat” plays in contemporary reactionary politics and policies. Our focus will be on the teaching of texts—both literary and cultural--written not by mainstream western authors and theorists, but by non-Western/diasporic writers and commentators so as to foreground the perspective of the Western Other(s).

Throughout the twentieth century literary studies that focused on world literature were defined and challenged by anti-colonial and postcolonial thought. Postcolonial theory focused on a critique of modernity and especially a critique of western empires. This panel seeks to shift the focus of the study of empire and invites papers that consider representations of the Islamic Empire. We invite papers that analyze literature, film, and other media that engage with Islam as a religion and culture. We ask the following questions, among others: To what extent has Islam affected western immigration policies?

Classical Greek Female Archetypes in Latin American Literature

Latin American poets, dramatists, and narrators, especially female ones, have appropriated the classical Greek heroines (Antigone, Clytemnestra, Medea, etc.) and adapted them to a Latin American social and political context to protest government violence and abuse, machismo and the victimization of women, and the male-female love relationship, among other themes. This panel will examine these works and see how classical Greek heroines have been transfigured and remodeled to fit a Latin American context.
Latin America has always been characterized by a dialectic of tradition and innovation. Revisiting and reconfiguring the classics has been a technique to elude censorship and address sensitive issues. This is an area that deserves further study.

In 2015, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán justified building a border fence to prevent migrants from Asia and Africa from entering Hungary as necessary to preserve Europe “for Europeans.” East and Central European countries in general have become associated with extreme xenophobia and anti-immigrant policies following their acceptance into the European Union. Erased in current debates over these formerly communist countries’ “Europeanness” is a different history of geopolitical positioning, one where they ideologically aligned themselves not with Western Europe, but with anticolonial movements in Asia, Africa and Central and South America during the Cold War.
