Meeting Description:

Between Tradition and Change: The Future of English in the Light of Globalization, Transculturalism and Internationalization

This conference will address English Studies as a discipline in transition and reflect on where it has been and where it is going. With the meteoric rise of English globally, the language is studied and used by as many as 2 billion speakers, and English Studies departments now teach such varied subjects as communications, discourse and rhetoric, language, literature, and film representing English language usage and texts across the globe. The study of classical English texts might be declining, but that slack has been taken up by other areas and endeavors, creating numerous challenges and opportunities.

Subthemes of the Conference:

- Tradition and Its Discontents.
Keynote: Peter Harder, Copenhagen University. Traditions and Its Discontents.
