Graduate Student Colloquium

Saturday May 7, 2016



How do agents, acts and artifacts interact in Literature, Linguistics, Language Pedagogy, Film and Cultural Studies


The Department of World Languages & Literatures at Portland State University invites graduate students of modern and classical foreign languages to present their scholarly research on literature, film, culture, linguistics, applied linguistics, language pedagogy, and interdisciplinary studies (e.g., cognitive literary studies, ecocriticism, communication studies). Participants are encouraged to explore the ways in which agents and authors, acts, and artifacts interact in texts. How are events and artifacts determined by the processes surrounding their realization? How do these processes affect their reception?  Possible topics within this theme include: 

Evolution • Interaction • Adaptation •Intervention • Influence • Inspiration • Dissemination
