International Conference to be held at
the University of Copenhagen
8-10 November 2007
Literature by migrants – those not at home where they write – foregrounds many questions concerning cultural and linguistic identity, not least the relationships between identity, language and territory. Fundamentally, such literature challenges the categories according to which literary disciplines have traditionally (that is, since the late nineteenth century) organised their research.
This conference on “Migration and Literature in Contemporary Europe” aims to bring together scholars researching within this field and to establish or negotiate the sense of a shared discipline with common paradigms and problematics.
