ERPA International Congresses on Education (2017)
日期 / 18 to 21 May 2017  地點 / Budapest / Hungary
Dear Colleague,

It is with great pleasure to inform you about the ERPA International Congresses on Education 2017 that will be held in Budapest / Hungary from 18 to 21 May 2017 (http://www.erpacongress.com). We hope that the conference will enable you to share your research with an international research community and to engage in discussion about the current issues in the field of education. Congress languages are English and Turkish. Nine branch congresses will be held concurrently in ERPA International Congresses on Education 2017;

ERPA International Educational Sciences Congress
ERPA International Science and Mathematics Education Congress
ERPA International Social Sciences Education Congress
ERPA International Health and Sports Science Education Congress
ERPA International Music and Fine Arts Education Congress
ERPA International Special Education Congress
ERPA International Computer Education and Instructional Technology Congress
ERPA International Language Education Congress
ERPA International Management of Education Congress

The main purpose in incorporating nine congresses within the scope of ERPA International Congresses on Education is to make the researchers aware of current trends in different fields, learn about the research conducted in different areas and help them discuss new trends and encourage interdisciplinary research. Therefore, the theme of the ERPA International Congresses on Education 2017 is “Interdisciplinary Research in Education”. Highlighting this theme does not mean underestimating or neglecting other important aspects of educational research and practice.

The ERPA International Congresses on Education will publish an “e-book of abstracts” and “e-book of full texts with ISBN”. Meanwhile, selected proceedings will be sent to the journal of SHS Web of Conferences for publication (if the authors request and pay the publication fee). ERPA 2015 and ERPA 2016 issues that are published in SHS Web of Conferences have already indexed in ISI Web of Knowledge. These proceedings should be well-written in terms of language use (the language of proceedings is English) and should be 5 to 7 pages in length. In addition, some selected proceedings can be referred for the publication in the journals that supporting the ERPA International Congresses on Education 2017. In that case the authors should obey the publishers’ rules.

Thanks for your consideration and we look forward to meeting all of you in Budapest / Hungary from 18 to 21 May 2017.

Best regards,

Organizing Committee of ERPA International Congresses on Education 2017

第三屆跨文化研究國際學術研討會:跨文化改寫、全球化與風險 2017 International Conference on Cross-Cultural Studies: Intercultural Adaptation, Globalization, and Risk
日期 / Conference dates: October 6-7 (Fri.-Sat.), 2017   地點 / Venue: Fu Jen Catholic University, Taipei, Taiwan
《Call for Papers》New Deadline: February 1, 2017

2017 International Conference on Cross-Cultural Studies:
Intercultural Adaptation, Globalization, and Risk

Joint Conference of Fu Jen Catholic University (Taiwan) and the University of Bayreuth (Germany)

Organizers (in alphabetical order):
College of Foreign Languages, Fu Jen Catholic University
Department of English and American Studies, University of Bayreuth
Department of English Language and Literature, Fu Jen Catholic University
Graduate Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies, Fu Jen Catholic University

Conference Scope: Literature, Language, Translation, Cultural Studies

Intercultural adaptation, globalization, and risk are three interrelated concepts, each complicating the other two and engaging vital issues in our society and world. Globalization has increased the possibilities and forms of intercultural adaptation and kinds of risk, even as the concept of risk has shifted from the rational management of outcomes toward a preoccupation with uncontrollable hazards and threats, from socio-economic fields toward those of culture and environment. In an increasingly globalized world where technology and economic development (or exploitation) asymmetrically connect different nations, intercultural adaptation and risk emerge and often overlap in contact zones that themselves proliferate ever more numerously in both physical and virtual spaces, in both material and abstract ways. As such, intercultural adaptation, itself a form of risk, opens opportunities for dialogue among “clashing cultural perceptions” that would otherwise remain “mutually exclusive certainties” (Ulrich Beck, World at Risk 12). Meanwhile, the representation of risk can involve transmediation (or remediation)—for example, from novel to film, from computer game to film, from graphic novel to television series, etc.—as it addresses “[t]he meanings of proximity, reciprocity, dignity, justice and trust” transformed by risk realities (Beck, World at Risk 188).

This conference seeks papers that engage with any of these key concepts: intercultural adaptation, globalization, risk, and/or intersections among them. How does the experience of risk serve to refashion cultural and linguistic boundaries? How, reciprocally, do border-crossing and intercultural adaptation shape the experience of risk and/or globalization? What kinds of risks are associated with political, economic, and cultural contact zones? Moreover, what is the line between cultural appropriation and respectful use, and how might these concerns involve risk? We are particularly interested in exploring how the transmission of narratives and tropes across media and/or cultural and linguistic boundaries has responded to, or impacted, the experience of risk on a global scale; and how the logic of risk and/or globalization is reflected in the forms of narrative, film, and graphic texts at different historical moments. Topics may include (but are by no means limited to):

--Intercultural adaptation in literature, theater, film, visual art, architecture, as well as linguistic usages
--Intercultural application of theory
--Literary modes and devices that foster or contain intercultural adaptation, e.g., allusion, allegory, typology, parody
--Intercultural communication via telecommunication
--Risk and global connectivity in culture
--Narratives of risk, trauma, and cultural memory
--Time-space of risk and contact zone in culture
--Migration and subjectivity at risk (nomad, refugee, homo sacer)
--Risk society, intercultural communication, and/or global flows

Proposals for complete panels are welcome. Conference language is English (except for complete panels in Chinese). Interested scholars are invited to submit a 500-word abstract (including keywords) as well as a brief CV to the following address: fjuengtw@gmail.com. Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Joseph C. Murphy, Chair of the Department of English Language and Literature, Fu Jen Catholic University, at fjuengtw@gmail.com.

2017 International Conference on Cross-Cultural Studies
Intercultural Adaptation, Globalization, and Risk




跨文化改寫、全球化與風險這三個概念在當今社會彼此習習相關、影響深遠。隨著科技發展日新月異,經濟擴充無遠弗屆,全球化風潮既增進跨文化改寫的形式與可能,也造成更多種風險。同時,風險原本專指理性控管風險,現在則泛指無法控制的危機;原本限於社會經濟範疇,現也延燒至文化與環境等領域,形成文化意義與全球化議題。當全球化勢力連接不同國家與文化,階級差異的權力作用使得「接觸地帶」上跨文化改寫、風險現象和文本不斷衍生、交錯與重疊。一如Ulrich Beck指出,跨文化改寫雖隱含風險,卻也在原本「壁壘分明」或對立的文化觀點中,開放出彼此對話與折衝的契機 (World at Risk 12)。此外,文學、語言、翻譯與文化文本往往跨越與轉換媒介──由小說改為電影、電玩演成電影、或將漫畫轉採電視影集形式,以處理風險如何改變「臨近、相互、尊嚴、正義與信任」的議題(World at Risk 188)。

西洋文學常出現以「回首」為主題的作品:在聖經裡,羅得的妻子罔顧上帝吩咐,回頭看了所多瑪城(Sodom),結果化作鹽柱。在希臘神話裡,奧菲斯(Orpheus) 原本好不容易帶著妻子重返人間,也因為他回頭看她,使得她墮回冥界深淵。這些故事似乎警告人別往後看,否則後悔莫及。但回首不一定就會災難臨頭:沙翁的歷史劇、渥波爾(Horace Walpole)的哥德小說、司各特(Sir Walter Scott)的歷史小說與佩得(WalterPater)的《文藝復興》(The Renaissance)皆回顧過去。這些作品有的重新詮釋過去,有的刻意脫離現實,有的反現代(化)。英美文學也常出現作者或故事主角重遊舊地:如在〈廷騰寺〉(Tintern Abbey)這首詩裡,華茲華斯(William Wordsworth)回到舊址,從對自然的記憶中找到慰藉。在詹姆斯(Henry James)的小說《奉使記》(The Ambassadors)裡,主角斯特瑞塞(Lewis Lambert Strether)更隔了數十載重返巴黎。他的舊記憶與新回顧搓揉在一起。而在二十與二十一世紀英美文學裡,離散與歷史小說也頻頻回首,使得主角、讀者穿越到他時、他方的繁華與廢墟。其探討議題不光旅

24th Annual Conference of the English and American Literature Association
Theme: Backward Glances: History, Time, Memory
Conference organizers: English and American Literature Association of the Republic of China (EALA, Taiwan) & National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan
Date: October 29, 2016
Venue: National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan

Call for Papers
DUE February 1, 2016
“Backward glance” is a recurring motif in Western literature: Lot’s wife becomes a pillar of salt because she disobeys God’s command and looks back at Sodom. Orpheus looks back at his wife Eurydice on their way back to the upper world, thus losing her to the underworld again—this time forever. These stories seem to warn people against backward glances. But looking backwards is not always punitive. William Shakespeare’s history plays, Horace Walpole’s Gothic novel, Sir Walter Scott’s historical fiction, and Walter Pater’s The Renaissance all glance backwards. Among these texts, some redefine the past, others escape the present, and still others take an anti-modern stance. In English and American literature, authors or characters may also return to a place. In “Tintern Abbey,” for example, William Wordsworth finds a saving grace in memories of nature. In Henry James’s The Ambassadors, Lewis Lambert Strether returns to Paris after decades, so that memories mingle with fresh reflections. In 20th/21st-century English and American literature, diaspora and historical fictions also abound with backward glances, as characters and readers pass through splendor and ruin across times and places. Such texts not only explore issues of travel, immigration, nation, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, trauma, geopolitics, and globalization, but they also emphasize the malleability and multiplicity of time. On the other hand, Walter Benjamin’s “angel of history,” Jacques Derrida’s “hauntology,” the memory studies animated by the Holocaust or postcolonial literature, and recent developments in discourses of affects and queer temporalities all attest to the import of backward glances.

The 24th annual conference of the English and American Literature Association in Taiwan, hosted by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at National Chiao Tung University, invites papers on “backward glances” in English and American literary and cultural studies. We hope to focus on three major aspects: history, time, and memory.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
1. Diaspora, historical, or trans-historical fiction
2. Retrospection, backward glances, or flashbacks in narratives
3. Degeneration and atavism in literature
4. Nostalgia and anachronism in literature
5. Anti-modern texts
6. Critiques of historicism
7. Intertextual studies
8. Return
9. Postmemory or any other removed memory
10. Sites of memory
11. Ghosts and haunting
12. Queer temporalities
13. Trauma, melancholy, and other backward affects
14. Science-fictional treatment of memory in literature and/or film
Please submit a 300-word abstract of your proposal, with a title and 3-5 keywords, to the committee at 2016eala@gmail.com by February 1, 2016.
