>That cultures exist in and through contact has been axiomatic in our
>disciplines for some time. One of the purposes of the conference will be
>to take stock of existing paradigms for the discussion of such
>contactˇfrom translation studies to the prominence of notions such as
>hybridity and diaspora in theoryˇand to attempt an overview that will
>place them in juxtaposition and 'contact,' rather than viewing them as
>self-contained approaches. At the same time, such an attempt will
>inevitably raise the question of the impact that the concern with
>cultures in contact has had on definitions of culture, and especially on
>the theorization of their external and internal borders.
>The topic of the conference transgresses the limits of the discipline of
>English and demands a degree of inter- or transdiciplinariness. It also
>necessitates reflection on its internal cohesion and diversity; it is to
>be hoped that we can instigate a lively dialogue between Literature and
>Linguistics, in particular, via papers that will address conflicts and
>convergences between them in their dealings with cultures in contact, as
>well as via a good balance of literary, linguistic and cultural studies
>contributions.
>
>We invite 20-minute papers. Please submit one-page proposals by 15
>February, 2005 to the address below.
>This is a SAUTE (Swiss Association of University Teachers of English)
>biennial conference. A selection of papers will be published in SPELL
>(Swiss Publications in Language and Literature).
