"EAST/WEST : RUPTURES & CONVERGENCES"

AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

1 - 2 December 2016

     

In order to promote dialogue between "East" and "West", and to also unpack and problematize those categories, we welcome papers that address a broad range of issues, particularly in relation to literature, art, film, and popular culture. Interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches are encouraged and especially approaches that focus on contentious political and moral issues. While traditional forms of presentation are welcome,participants may also make use of less conventional modes involving, for example, pictorial essays or the incorporation of social media.

The conference will take place at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 1 - 2 December 2016. The organizers are proud to announce that "East/West: Ruptures and Convergences" is being held to commemorate the University of Malaya's 111th anniversary this year.
