Transcultural Approaches to Europe

Year of Funding: 
2020/2021

The Colloquium on Transcultural Approaches to Europe advances crucial conversations on world language and literature study on our campus, through an interdisciplinary, multi-departmental speaker series focused on issues of race, identity, colonialism, and migration within a broad European context. These trans- or postnational, transcultural, and multilingual approaches to national literatures offer effective frameworks for undergraduates, graduates, and faculty to grasp the intersectional complexity of power configurations in literary and visual cultures and in doing so generate fruitful pathways for decoloniality and its cultural producers.
