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 is scheduled to take 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 addresses the migration and encounters of literary and cultural expressions across national lines.

Applications to join the production team will be available in January 2018.  The Call for Papers from interested students will be circulated at the beginning of February 2018.  Team members and speakers will receive TRAINING.
