The Glocal City in Canadian Literature - Universidad de Salamanca (June 6-8, 2011)

Despite the fact that Canada is mostly an urban country and most Canadians live in or close to large cities, the Canadian imaginary has historically fed upon mythologies of the North and the wilderness as a result of the vast and awesome natural landscapes of the country and the pivotal influence of nationalist cultural figures of the stature of Northrop Frye and Margaret Atwood.

This conference interrogates the classic paradigm of nature as the dominant cultural trope to understand Canadian identity while engaging the interdisciplinary and international dialogue about the impact of globalization on the city, the convergence site par excellence of the global and the local forces at work in society.

Canadian literature offers an invaluable ground to ponder on and assess how “Glocalization” (a term proposed by Edward W. Soja to refer to global/local interaction) in the city affects--unsettling, de- territorrializing and re-territorializing--identity, politics, the economy, notions of ethnicity, ethics, gender, class, sexuality, civility, nationality, etc.

The conference provides a forum for a select group of scholars, writers and other cultural and artistic agents from Europe and Canada to look at the literature emerging from Canada from the prism of glocalization and discuss its effects on the individual and society as well as on the production and consumption of culture.
