CFP: Migration, Border, and the Nation-State (4/9-4/11/09)
The 2009 Joint Conference on “Migration, Border, and the Nation-State” co-hosted by Texas Tech University Comparative Literature Program and the United States Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies
April 9-11, 2009 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, U. S. A.
The joint conference looks for presentations that investigate new meanings, assumptions, and implications of migration, border crossing, and nation building as well as papers that explore the representations of emigration, borderlands, and nation-states in different cultural forms, literary genres, and technological media. We welcome both proposals that examine the interrelations among migration, border, and the nation-state in political and historical terms and projects that offer innovative interpretations of cultural productions that foreground the new dynamics in relation to our everyday life, social practice, and planetary awareness.
