II International Symposium on Cultural Transfers of the American West: Beyond Borders



Dear Friends, we are pleased to announce that we are ready to organize a new event on the American West. In REWEST Research Group we want to start the new schoolyear after holidays with a fresh activity. We hope you'll find it interesting. Here you have some information on what we are planning to do next. Soon, you'll find more on this right on this blog. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you want to get more news on this. 




II INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM 
“CULTURAL TRANSFERS OF THE AMERICAN WEST: BEYOND BORDERS”

(OCTOBER 9-10, 2017, VITORIA-GASTEIZ)
FACULTY OF ARTS, UPV/EHU



This international symposium will examine the multiple connections between western American literature and other cultural and artistic phenomena. Certainly, the long-lasting cultural transfers and intertextual links between western writing and western movies will be a major issue in this symposium. However, this forum will also address other cultural and artistic manifestations that interact, overlap, and interrelate with western writing in complex, often dialogic ways, as exemplified by television, music, photography, and translation. The symposium will privilege transnational and interdisciplinary approaches aiming to understand properly a genre whose iconography has moved well beyond both national limits and literary borders. After all, we will be dealing with a genre that claims to be both exceptional and universal.
