Images of America in World Literature (Roundtable)


American/Diaspora / World Literatures (non-European Languages)

Francisco Delgado (Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY)

America has always been an idea and a conversation as much as a geographic or political entity, and world literature has contributed more than its share of images to that evolving debate. This panel seeks papers on images of America in world literature, past and present, celebratory or condemning, in English or in translation. Please submit 250-word abstracts.
