7th Languages & Literatures Conference 

Conflict: Global Perspectives

Conflict: Global Perspectives

Held Virtually
Time: March 9-11, 2023

"Conflict: Global Perspectives" asks participants to consider the relationship between literature and language and conflict and, more importantly, how literature and language ‘do’ conflict, how they complicate and are complicated by notions and irreconcilabilities of gender, class, race, mood, emotion, genre, and aesthetics. Presentations treating conflicted/conflicting narrative, visual, and cinematic representations of unraveling communities, relationships, and environments are especially welcome. We will gladly consider presentations in Spanish, Italian, English, French, and German. If you submit an abstract in a language other than English, please attach an English-language translation of this abstract.

Undergraduate students may apply to the general undergraduate CFP. 

Submission Guidelines:

We welcome abstract submissions of 250 words for 15-20-minute presentations (8-10 typed pages, double-spaced).

Please submit the abstract and brief bio to cpltfrenconf@lsu.edu.

Deadline: December 31, 2022.


Following the conference, participants may submit their paper for consideration for publication in the Tête-a-tête conference proceedings. 

Vol. 3 of LSU’s Comparative Woman Journal, to be published in 2023, will also accept nominations for the Best Essay Prize. The award will include publication in the volume and a certificate.
