>Globalization is by many accounts the central crisis of our age. And in the
>wake of postcolonial studies and the events of 9/11, literary studies has
>made a definitive ėglobal turn.ķ But we have still only begun to examine the
>myriad effects of globalization upon literary texts (broadly defined to
>include prose fiction and non-fiction, drama, poetry, film, electronic
>texts, and popular culture in all its forms).
>
>ģGlobalization and Literary Studiesī invites papers that explore the impact
>of globalization studies on the literary, the contribution of literature to
>global processes, and/or the ways globalization appears in specific literary
>texts. Possible questions for examination may include: what do we mean by
>ėglobalķ and ėglobalizationķ when speaking about literature? How do we read
>for and teach the global in literature? In what ways do literary texts
>reflect contemporary crises of globalization? How do global presences in
>national literatures challenge the authority of the nation-state as the
>organizing rubric for reading literature? Does the global in literature
>highlight or mask cultural difference, history, and political conflict? How
>is the local re-negotiated in a global context? Does literature contain
>counter-discourses to dominant understandings of globalization or does it
>only repeat and flaunt ideologies of globalization? What risks and
>possibilities are at stake in the globalization of literary studies?
