Meeting Description:

Purdue University School of Languages and Cultures 14th Annual Graduate Student Symposium March 7-8, 2014
Merging Borders: Language, Literature and Communication in Cross-cultural Contexts

Throughout history, previously isolated groups have come into contact with outsiders, in terms of customs, religion, and language. These interactions can yield varying results based on the specific circumstances of the cultural meeting. How well do two groups unknown to each other successfully communicate across cultural boundaries? What are the literary, linguistic, socio-political and cultural outcomes of such communication? How do cross-cultural interactions alter the way original members of the same group communicate? Research into specific interactions of this type can reveal patterns in the nature of human language and communication, as well as provide an insight into certain aspects of cultural and literary production across merging borders.

Keynote Speakers: 

Dr. Dov-Ber Kerler, Indiana University 
Dr. Karen Thornber, Harvard University

Invited Speakers: 

Dr. Rafael Climent-Espino, Baylor University 
Dr. Muriel Gallego, Ohio University

2nd Call for Papers:

Purdue University School of Languages and Cultures 14th Annual Graduate Student Symposium March 7-8, 2014

Merging Borders: Language, Literature and Communication in Cross-cultural Contexts

The Purdue University School of Languages and Cultures invites graduate students to submit original research whose results contribute to an understanding of communication across cultural, geographic and linguistic boundaries. This symposium aims to foment discussion surrounding an issue of ever more importance in the United States and across the globe as technology and globalization shift the way humans interact toward an ever more connected society. The struggle between conformity and maintenance of individual and cultural diversity merits special focus in a time of such unprecedented social change.
