A century after the end of World War One and almost three decades since the collapse of communism and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, borders remain a key topic for countries in Eastern Europe and the larger Black Sea region. In recent years, increasing security concerns and global economic mobility have forced the border issue back on political agendas and in public discourses across Europe.
In line with the theme proposed for the 44th annual meeting of the African Literature Association in 2018, “The Environments of African Literature”, the Lusophone/Hispanophone Caucus (LHCALA) invites submissions for roundtables, paper or poster presentations that engage Lusophone and/or Hispanophone perspectives.
