The American Corner Nablus in collaboration with the American Studies Minor programme at An-Najah National University invites you to participate in the 2017 American Studies Symposium titled:
Beyond “Home”: Poetics and Politics of Displacement
Which will be held on Monday, September 25th, 2017 at the Zafer Al-Masri Auditorium in the Old Campus at 10:00 am
This symposium seeks to address the various modes of literary representations concerning or arising from the displacement of people due to colonialism, war, persecution, or economic collapse. It invites paradigms of analysis that highlight the modes of departures of the displaced and the processes that led to their (constant) displacement. It also aims to foreground the voice of the refugees, exiles, (illegal) immigrants and expatriates and to gain more insight into historical, socio-political and cultural parameters of ‘the displaced’ through literature.
