Call For Papers

The notion of cosmopolitanism can be readily articulated through the acts of writing and reading. After all, as William Nicholson stated, “we read to know that we are not alone.” Therefore, writing and reading are the precious acts of sharing, of breaking through the surface of remoteness, estrangement and indifference towards those situated in the present and those buried in the past. Both creative writing and reading open up new paths towards (re)-discovery of the past as well as towards the understanding of our current placement in the global, cosmopolitan context. Therefore, this conference and workshops, embracing both the past and the present, encourages one to participate in the acts of sharing, reading and writing in order to approach the notion of cosmopolitanism in its multifaceted forms.

The event will be an inspiring combination of traditional paper presentations and original workshops on creative writing and creative reading in the challenging era of cosmopolitanism. We invite scholars and writers to participate and share their academic and/or creative work in London!
