Each year, undergraduates from SFU’s World Literature Program host an interdisciplinary academic student conference addressing cultural, social, and aesthetic frames of reference. Our panels range across literature, cinema, & the image, and investigate the socio-political, cultural, & literary fallouts of cross-national encounters.
The 2018 CONFERENCE took place from 4-6 PM on Wednesday, April 4th at the Halpern Centre on SFU's Burnaby Campus. This year's conference theme is "THE ROAD NOT TAKEN" : WHAT'S SO WRONG WITH DIFFERENCE? and it addressed the migration and encounters of literary and cultural expressions across national lines.
