full name / name of organization: 

The objective of this round-table session is to explore, examine, and discuss, in a variety of manners, particular literary protagonists and antagonists in world literary cultures. What seems to be their intrigue? What empowers them, or, perhaps, who do they empower? Consideration of and elaboration on points of view, themes, idiosyncrasies, heroisms, actions, styles, diction, and purpose(s) will be important to ascertain and reveal in a deliberate, inspirational, thought-provoking, as well as insightful dialogue with, hopefully, a sharing of esoteric discoveries. Contemplate how and in what ways certain protagonists and antagonists across world literatures continue to have tremendous value or a long-lasting effect in their specific roles. This round-table session promises to be a wonderfully exceptional assembly of captivating exposés.
