Diasporic Trajectories: Transnational Cultures in the 21st Century

Another great initiative that is about to start at the University of Edinburgh is the ‘Diasporic Trajectories: Transnational Cultures in the 21st Century’ seminar series. Based in the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities, the ‘Diasporic Trajectories’ series aims to encourage underexplored comparative perspectives on a range of diaspora-related themes. The first seminar will take place on Friday 13 February between 2 and 5pm (the two talks will be separated by a coffee break). The speakers will be:

Prof. Janet Wilson, ‘”Wavering between two worlds”: Liminality in anglophone diaspora writing’

Prof. Charles Forsdick, ‘Beyond the francophone: postcolonialism, comparatism, transnationalism’
