Meeting Description: Moving texts: mediations and transculturations seeks to trigger discussion of interlinguistic and intercultural dialogues from different viewpoints, be they linguistic, cultural or literary, and to encourage the intertwining of disciplines.

Intercultural contact has, for some decades now, offered pervasive yet complex opportunities for study. This line of work aspires to identify and understand flows of information, fashions and power relations and to lend coherence to the processes inscribed in the concepts of diffusion, influence, mediation, centre and periphery, colonized and colonizer, uniformity and heterogeneity, foreignization and domestication, originality and copy, us and others. The cultural shiftings that Romanticism linked to the Nation were reconsidered in the more cosmopolitan Modernist movement and, especially after the outbreak of WWII, were reinvented in the planetary resonances present in the ideas of universalism and, more recently, globalization.
