Literature and Language of Resistance Symposium

Department of English Language and Literature, Cairo University –

The Twelfth International Symposium on Comparative Literature (November 11th-13th, 2014).

“Resistance manifests itself in everyday life, and is always triggered by oppression. Resistance can also be perceived as “an alternative way of conceiving human history” as Edward Said puts it. It takes various forms, challenging language, culture, class, gender, race, religion, among other entities that mark human identity. The operations of power follow specific systems that keep repeating themselves, yet they produce different forms of resistance.” Click here for more.

Deadline for receiving abstracts is May 30th. No abstracts will be received after the deadline.
