Hyderabad's Osmania University to host 3-day international conference on Commonwealth Literature
Hyderabad-based Osmania University's Centre for International Programmes & Indian Society for Commonwealth Studies is going to organise a three-day International Conference on Commonwealth Literature on 16-18 February, 2017.
The conference will discuss multiculturalism focusing on the ideological issues of caste, gender, religion, and the social movements affecting the new literatures written in different languages and regions with a view to bringing out the multicultural diversity of the globe, state the event organisers.

The theme of the conference is "Emergence of Globalization: Towards Transnationalism". According to the concept note on the conference theme, globalisation is a complex economic, political and social process in which the mobility of capital organisations, ideas, discourses and peoples has taken a global or transnational form that has created a tremendous impact on the lives of people across the world.

"In keeping with the sweeping changes taking place on global footing in relation to human beings, literature examines the notion of globalisation by focusing on the narrow and the local, and searches for the nature and significance of universal values. The plurality and profusion of cultures forms the core of globalisation," states the concept note.

The subthemes of the conference are the global theory; globalism and literature; diversity; multiculturalism; local, glocal and global identity; hybridity, ambivalence, contingency in postcolonial literature; feminism; eco-criticism; nation as an imaginary entity; diaspora literature; subaltern studies; and comparative literature.
