|Meeting Description:||Exploring the Periphery
Perspectives from Applied Linguistics, Language Teaching, Literary and Cultural Studies
November 8-9, 2013 (Bielefeld University, Germany)
This interdisciplinary conference aims at exploring and challenging the concept of periphery from various angles and in different fields of British and American Studies. As the ‘writing back’ paradigm of Postcolonial Studies illustrates, the concept of periphery still implies the existence of a center that generates and sustains binary oppositions and hierarchical structures. As we experience global migration and transnational mobility, we need to renegotiate the concept of periphery in order to make sense of the newly emergent dichotomies in linguistic, language teaching, cultural and literary spheres.
