The formation, reconfiguration and dissolution of nations and peoples have transformed cultural landscapes the world over. Through tumultuous events such as the World Wars, the Holocaust, the fall of the Soviet Union, North American westward expansion and colonial and post-colonial disruptions, the cultures and peoples of the globe have been radically altered, displaced, and exterminated. Despite the meta-narratives of European unity, Islamic unity and the One World Order, memory persists in diverse and multifaceted cultural and historical expressions. In this symposium, we will explore how various cultural representations (literature, film, music, and all forms of narrative and artistic expression) negotiate the turmoil of the past.
The Comparative Literature Program of Texas Tech University invites one page proposals for presentations. Proposals for panels may also be submitted consisting of one-page abstracts from each of the participants.
One page proposals accepted through extended deadline of 15 December.
