SPACES OF CONFRONTATION
III INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN TRANSATLANTIC STUDIES
May 12th-13th 2017
Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard (Cambridge, MA)
Transatlantic culture often presents itself as a narrative of encounter and dialogue that transcend the limits of the local. However, the trace of colonialism, the living memory of exile, and an uneven distribution of economic, political, and symbolic power haunts transatlantic imagination. This conference aims to explore the many ways in which antagonisms, uneasy pluralism, and tense negotiations of difference overdetermine sites of Transatlantic cultural practices.
