Meeting Description:

The XXVI FILLM International Congress provides an opportunity for linguists and literary scholars from all over the world to compare notes about current developments. Human beings are now living, working and communicating in an increasingly global, interconnected world, with new forms and uses of language, and new ways for literature to be produced, disseminated and read, often enabled or promoted by new and rapidly developing technologies. At the same time there is a fairly widespread supposition that, within different macro- and microcontexts, globalization is experienced and understood in widely different ways. Hence the coinage ‘glocal’. Hence, too, the need to explore what such local-cum-global variation really means in practice for human individuals and societies.
