The "British Literature and Culture: 20th and 21st Centuries" session welcomes papers that explore the rich cultural heritage of 20th and 21st Century British literature. It is important to note that this session uses the term “literature” liberally to include visual and performing arts, products of stage and screen that point to aspects of British culture generally, including the country’s politics. With regard to the conference’s theme “Translation in Action,” the session also welcomes but does not require proposals that discuss how the non-Anglophone world has reacted to/understood/re-interpreted 20th and 21st century British literature, or thoughts on teaching this literature in the American classroom.
