Perspectives: Centers, Margins, Boundaries
The one-day symposium explores the complex relationships between centers and peripheral spaces, as well as boundaries and borders that define our world and how they are represented in literatures and the visual arts.
Bringing together three leading scholars from Germany, France, and the United States, the symposium explores diasporas and exile, forced and voluntary migrations, and the consequences of moving between centers and peripheries. Based on the notion that geo-temporal questions are important for a critical understanding of the human condition, the event aims for a new understanding of Europe through interdisciplinary and geocritical approaches to the literary and artistic representations of Centers, Margins and Boundaries.
The symposium is founded by a CUSE Grant and co-sponsored by the CNY Humanities Corridor.
