oa Alternation - When 'Trek', 'Gulf' and 'Guilt' Goes

The topic of this conference, 'Towards a Transcultural Future: Literature and Society in a ""Post""-Colonial World' diagnosed the future objective of a present and existing articulation of literature and society. This interpretation derives from the assumption that, as critics problematising the literature-society interface, we should discursively contribute to the realising or facilitate an entry into a transcultural era or epoch. This does not only mean that there is an implicit assumption of the significance of literature, i.e. with regard to its capacity to prefigure such a reality, but that critics themselves have a significant role to play in this event. Significant with regard to the notion of the transcendence objectified in such a 'future', is too, that it would transcend the 'racism' inherent in theoretical versions of 'multiculturalism'.
