The transnational turn in literary studies is a timely topic. As Paul Jay notes “[transnationalism] has reshaped literary and cultural studies,” “productively complicated the nationalist paradigm,” and “transformed the nature of the locations we study, and focused our attention on forms of cultural production that take place in the liminal spaces between real and imagined borders. This transformation has exploded under the forces of globalization.”
For the 7th-Annual Graduate Conference in Comparative Literature at the University of Alberta: Coordinates of Comparison we invite papers that explore and analyze the notion of Transnational Canons from a variety of interdisciplinary critical perspectives.
