A conference in Recognition of Professor Ken Harrow and a Tribute to the English Graduate Program

This conference is in recognition of Professor Ken Harrow and a tribute to the English Graduate Program. One of the defining and intractable issues in contemporary literature of the Global South, African, South Asian, and Postcolonial in general, is dislocated people seeking refuge across national boundaries. This Symposium is a reflection on the different states and cycles of displacement, assimilation and return, and of the disruptions and transformations of State institutions and structures that mediate these transitions in politics and culture.

Sponsored by the MSU Department of English, African Studies Center, Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities, Muslim Studies, Film Studies, African American and African Studies, Peace and Justice Studies, Department of Romance and Classical Studies, and the Asian Studies Center.
