Hosted by the graduate program for Studies in Comparative Literature & Arts at Brock University, graduate students are invited to submit abstracts of 250-350 words that explore issues concerning Comparative Literature in the age of globalization, particularly with relation to transmodal issues and the "other arts".
This conference has three goals: the first, considering the ways in which Comparative Literature has “won its battles” and whether or not these battles have been won at all; the second goal of this conference is to consider future directions for Comparative Literature, particularly the inclusion of the “other arts,” and the implications of this inclusion for Comparative Literature as a discipline. Finally, the third goal of this conference is to highlight studies in Comparative Literatures and Arts by graduate students and to consider through which theoretical frameworks should transmodal issues in Comparative Literature be approached.
Deadline for abstract submissions to conference organizers is September 15, 2007 and may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
