The organizers invite papers on all aspects of Joseph Conrad’s engagement with transnational or transcultural themes. Conrad’s works confront the challenges of transnationality on land or sea, not only through explorations of language, race, and ethnicity, but his characters’ attempts to forge transcultural unity in the face of alterity. Please send abstracts of up to 150 words on this or any other aspect of Conrad’s engagement with the theme to Dr. Mark Deggan at mark_deggan@sfu.ca before 15th March 2021.
