“Want a different ethic? Tell a different story.” –Thomas King
Taking seriously Thomas King’s declaration, this year’s annual roundtable asks what world literature means for the graduate students of York University. This event seeks to create a space where hegemonic narratives can be contested. What might it look like to imagine world literature otherwise (Justice 2018)?
The World Literature Working Group is a student-led initiative that seeks to bring together scholars from a number of departments and disciplines to discuss the world as it pertains to literary, translation, and comparative studies. At this roundtable a panel of graduate student researchers will share ongoing work that sketches the contours of world literature at York University. Guests are invited to attend and are encouraged to participate in this discussion.
PANELISTS INCLUDE: Shoilee Khan, Angie Park, Zaynab Ali, Carolina De Souza, Tyler Ball
CHAIR: Justyna Poray-Wybranowska
