III BCLA Graduate Student Conference: 'Confrontation'

United Kingdom
Goldsmiths University of London
Closing date for submissions: 
2 January, 2007
Event dates: 
Plenary Speaker:
Dr Muireann O'Cinneide (University of Oxford)

The question of confrontation occupies a central position across disciplinary and geographical boundaries, especially in light of recent debates on multiculturalism and globalisation. What are the issues we need to address when we speak of the confrontation (or reconciliation) of different cultures, genders, classes, and disciplines? Indeed, what are the problems or blind spots inherent in the very theory and vocabulary with which different discourses address the question of confrontation?

This one-day conference, taking place at Goldsmiths College, University of London, seeks to provide a transnational, interdisciplinary forum for a reconsideration of the notion.

Attendance is free of charge.

The coordinators wish to thank the Department of English and Comparative Literature, Goldsmiths College, for their generous support of this conference.
