CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY OF PORTUGAL

CALL FOR PAPERS

AUTHORITY _VERSUS _ALTERITY: THE RETURN OF HEGEMONY?

This conference wishes to address the extant crisis as a landscape of cultural and aesthetic possibilities as well as of constraints and perils: how will financial instability affect the self-image of the Western world as well as its relationship with its many others?, how will fear and anxiety determine translatability both in a literal and in
a metaphorical sense?, what images and representations of identity and alterity will literature, film, TV, music produce at a time of distress and unrest?, how will the new-found desire for authority and authenticity articulate with the plurality of contemporary societies?

Culture and Representation

Gender Studies

Linguistics

Literature

Literary Theory

Film and Other Media

Translation
