First Interdisciplinary LLC Graduate Conference  
McGill University, Montréal, QC, Canada - April 20-22

Call for papers:


Keynote Speaker: Jeroen Dewulf, University of California - Berkeley

McGill’s First Interdisciplinary Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Graduate Student Conference seeks to 
question and discuss the making of a pan-European identity as well as to reflect on the impact of Europeanism 
in the world. In discussing these questions, the conference will also yield a forum for examining the 
proliferation of homeland narratives across and beyond Europe, and for exploring issues uniting or dividing 
continental, national, and regional loyalties. 

We encourage comparative, transnational, and interdisciplinary approaches to the theme Europe’s 
Dis/integration from scholars working in any field of the humanities. Possible topics include, but are not limited 
•	      Portrayals of Europe in film, literature and the arts
•	      National, regional and transnational narratives on Europe
•	      Clashes of identity: Gender, class, nation
•	      Transatlantic dis/integration: Colonial and postcolonial perspectives on Europe and the Americas in 
                the literary, cinematic   and artistic tradition
•	      Islam in Europe
•	      Pan-European policy and its impact on economy, culture and identity
•	      Europe's East-West / North-South divides 
•	     “From the outside”: Non-European perspectives on Europe and Europeans in literature, film and the 
•	      Literary, historical or filmic representations of migration and integration
•	      Europe's legacy: Multi-linguism, multi-culturalism and plural identities across and beyond Europe
•	      From myth to reality: Europa’s Greek tragedy
