A selection of peer-reviewed papers will be published in an ISSN Conference Proceedings volume (in pdf format) at Presa Universitara Clujeana publishing house which has national CNCSIS accreditation.

Iasi-Chernowitz Conference: Embracing Linguistic and Cultural Diversity through English

Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania, Faculty of Letters, Department of English

Yuriy Fedkovici University of Chernivtsi, Ukraine, Faculty of Letters, Department of English

12-14 October 2017

Discourse on linguistic and cultural diversity is by no means new and the topic has been approached from the most diverse angles of investigation: from cultural studies, anthropology and linguistics to literature, translation studies and foreign language teaching – if we were to mention some of the disciplines that are closest to this area of research. Despite its recurrence, though, the subject is far from losing its high relevance at a time when cultural and linguistic identities are constantly challenged by the powerful – and inevitable – phenomenon of globalization. Moreover, the interdisciplinary potential of the topic makes it still attractive to further multifaceted research and thought-provoking inquiries. Read more

CFP – The Life of Others: Narratives of Vulnerability

Call for papers for a special issue of Canada & Beyond: A Journal of Canadian Literary and Cultural Studies (Spring 2018 issue) Guest Editor: Eva Darias-Beautell

This special issue invites contributors to offer a critical examination of Canadian cultural production with an emphasis on the discursive modes that deconstruct the hegemonic structures that produce vulnerability. We also wish to invite research articles that interpret the present condition of (un)willed adjacency in its real and metaphoric possibilities as a site of production of violence and vulnerability, but also (potentially) of lucid creativity, exposing, soliciting, seducing “in ways that sustain us but also in ways that can destroy us.” Read more
