The Institute of Arts and Humanities at the University of Minho, Braga, Portugal will be hosting an international conference titled ‘Intercultural Poetics: Literary Representations of the Foreign Other’ on 18-19 June 2015. The international conference aims to bring together contributions for a joint discussion and analysis of literary texts relating to all periods and genres of literature, which include direct or indirect reference to the Other as Foreign, either by suggesting certain images and representations or even by constituting representative ‘imagotypes’ of a given people, ethnic group or nation.
Proposals for 20-minute papers accompanied with a brief biographical note are invited. Deadline for abstracts is 28 February 2015.
See the call for papers for details.
