For historians, watersheds are an inescapable tool. To think in terms of
continuity and change, scholars cannot help but look for ruptures and
breaks, turning points and defining moments. But a timeframe demands a
beginning and an end. The validity of origins or beginnings has now been
challenged. But what of ‘end’?

40th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Boston MA

At the beginning of the 19th century, when it was common for European
countries to assert hospitableness as a defining national characteristic,
their proclamations were often accompanied by a violent countervailing
impulse. This panel will explore hospitality, that is, the dynamic
encounter between host and stranger, when the boundary separating known and
unknown is brought into sharp relief.
