in collaboration with


invites you to the

3rd International


Symposium of
Western Cultural and Literary Studies

9-11 October 2013

Gaziantep, Turkey

The BAKEA Symposium is a biennial
symposium organized by Pamukkale University. This year it will be organized
jointly by Pamukkale and Gaziantep Universities and hosted by Gaziantep

BAKEA welcomes papers and panel proposals from researchers in the fields of
English, American, French and German Cultures and Literatures.


The relation between historical study and the practice and study of
literature is a tense one, with both disciplines existing symbiotically with
each other and rejecting and overriding one another: to historicise is to
override literature, while to aestheticise can be to ignore historical contexts
and historiography.  With this conference
the interdependent, interpenetrating and contradictory disciplines of history
and literature will be celebrated.


This conference solicits proposals for papers by researchers and
scholars in the fields of English, American, French and German Cultures and
Literatures that examine the role of history in literature and the relationship
between history and literature to be presented at a three-day conference held
between the ninth and eleventh of October 2013, at Gaziantep University in
Gaziantep, Turkey.

The BAKEA Symposium welcomes papers and/or panel proposals that cover,
though are not limited to, one or more of the following topics:

Contemporary history and the
     future of memoryThe end of historyConflicting historiesApocryphal historyRemembering vs. forgettingBiography vs. autobiographyPrivate historiesMetahistoryThe conjunction of theory and
     historyHistoricism and

     historyFiction and poetry as
