Home, Community, and Culture

3rd Annual Languages and Literature Conference

Comparative Literature Graduate Association

Louisiana State University

March 29 - 30, 2019

What is “home”? Is it the physical space where you live or a metaphysical state of mind? What or who do we associate with it? Is it something you run to or is it something you try to leave behind? Positively or negatively, consciously or subconsciously, home, community, and culture shape us: our art, how we think, and – most importantly – how we view and interact with the world.

Searching for, journeying to, escaping from, and/or fighting for home, community, and culture are prevalent themes in literary texts from around the world. This conference invites papers that explore these and other concepts by considering the motivations, representations, and intersections of home, community, and culture in texts that reflect a variety of disciplines, genres, and linguistic traditions.

This conference is open to both graduate and undergraduate participants. We encourage submissions that address the conference theme through presentations on literature, film, music, performance, etc. Abstracts of 300-500 words should be sent as a Word Document to clgalsu@gmail.com by February 1, 2019.
