States of Refuge: A conference in recognition of Professor Ken Harrow and a tribute to the English Graduate Program more information...
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.
