School of Arts and Humanities / Centre for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Education and Communications
The papers in this volume contributed by scholars from twenty countries are the product of the CISLE (Centre for the International Study of Literatures in English) Conference held at Innsbruck University. In accordance with our conference theme "Literatures in English: New Frontiers in Research", these selected papers contain what the critics regard as most important new aspects in their own writing and the works of other scholars or writers, or new thematic parameters and methodological approaches with exemplary illustrations and interpretations. The approaches reach from aesthetic and ethical, semiotic, intertextual and intermedial issues, on the one hand, to questions of identity, slavery and abolition, alterity and otherness as well as diaspora, transnationalism and transhumanism, on the other. Also, a great variety of aspects of writers and works from each of the continents are taken into consideration.
