Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Culture, Language and People: 50th Annual NeMLA Conference (session: Diasporic Spaces) (Washington DC: 21-24 March 2019)

Deadline: 30 Sep 2018

This session is seeking proposals exploring Diasporic Spaces in keeping with the theme of the 50th annual NeMLA conference, Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Culture, Language and People. The diaspora is an important cultural phenomenon in the formation of national identities and opposing attempts to develop forms of transnationalism. Categories such as national identity, migration, exile, war, colonialism, post-colonialism, race, and gender shape the diasporic experience. Papers should explore the sundry ways culture and Anglophone literature by colonized subjects and emigrants negotiate diasporic spaces to create imagined communities or views of home oscillating between estrangement and engagement.
