World Literature Student Conference 2019
Being in Place: Landscape & Identity in World Literatures
Wednesday, April 3
4:00pm - 6:00pm | CATERED GALA 6—8PM
Halpern Centre, SFU Burnaby Campus
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, and literary fallouts of cross-national encounters.
The 2019 CONFERENCE takes place from 4-6 PM on Wednesday, April 3rd at the Halpern Centre on SFU's Burnaby Campus. The year's conference theme is "BEING IN PLACE: LANDSCAPE & IDENTITY IN WORLD LITERATURES", and it asks how feelings of "being in place" emerge in a world divided by complex and intersecting boundaries and borders.
