Call for Papers: Undergraduate Conference in the Modern Languages | "Migrations of Cultures"

"Migrations of Cultures"

An Undergraduate Conference in the Modern Languages
To be held at the University of Pittsburgh March 30-31 2017

The conference papers should address the concept of cultural migrations in the broadest sense of the term, that is, immigrations and emigrations in real and virtual space linked to the movements of people(s), language(s) and culture(s). We are looking for multiple disciplinary, geographic, and historical perspectives reflecting the conflicts and the opportunities created by the shifting flows of populations, languages and cultural traditions, throughout the ages and in the contemporary world. The language of the conference will be English but we welcome papers addressing Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish languages and cultures.

This bi-annual conference for undergraduate students is organized and hosted by the Modern Languages programs at the University of Pittsburgh and will feature one prominent keynote speaker in addition to the papers presented by undergraduates.
