The Institute of English Studies at the University of Wrocław is pleased to announce the first international student conference “Writing as Resistance and Transgression: Gender, Poetics and Activism in Post-War Literature in English,” which will be held online on May 27-28, 2021. The conference aims to bring together both undergraduate and postgraduate emerging scholars interested in researching forms of resistance in anglophone literature after World War Two. The focus of the conference is activist and transgressive literature that addresses social constructs in language and content, also related to different means of expression and styles.

We welcome proposals addressing any chosen aspect of our topic. Possible approaches might include but are not limited to:

● spaces of protest in anglophone literature
● literary representation and empowerment of the margins
● literary responses to capitalism and globalization
● autobiographical works and self-exile
● sex, gender and LGBTQ+ narratives
● representation of disabilities
● literature and censorship
● activism within academia
● postmodernism, postcolonial writing, posthumanism
● linguistic transgressions and intersectionality
● reshaped habitats in contemporary writing
