University of Nottingham Ningbo China
17-19 June 2014
For the full Call for Papers please see
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.
The Congress will take the form of a number of Plenary Lectures by leading world experts, plus Parallel Sessions on the following seven subthemes (for more detailed information on the parallel sessions see http://www.fillm.org/ningbohome.html):
