Literary and film historians propose five key concepts for reflection on global literary studies
Posted: 19 May, 2021
Researchers at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) are organising an international symposium to analyse literary and film history and the cultural processes, texts and agents involved, from a perspective that seeks to be transnational, gender-based and decentralised.
The symposium which will take place on 20 and 21 May is organised by the Global Literary Studies Research Laboratory (GlobaLS), will feature renowned theorists from the USA, Asia and Europe.
International experts in the sociology of literature, translation studies, film history, novel studies, digital humanities, and cultural transfer will use an interdisciplinary approach to debate the five key concepts of global literary studies: space, scale, time, connectivity and agency. It will take place as part of the Global Literary Studies: Key Concepts symposium organised by Diana Roig-Sanz and Neus Rotger Cerdà, members of the UOC’s Global Literary Studies Research Laboratory (GlobaLS), with the support of the European Research Council (ERC).
