The inaugural ExRe(y) conference took place on April 7-8, 2016 at the Faculty of Humanities at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin. It was organized by MCSU Department of American Literature and Culture in cooperation with Canadian Studies Department and Video Games Center. The topic of the conference, “Spaces of Expression and Repression in Post-Millennial North-American Literature and Visual Culture,” generated so much interest that we had participants coming from many countries, including Germany, Great Britain, Lithuania, Turkey, Belarus, Czechia, Slovakia, and Ukraine, as well as from several academic institutions in Poland.

The call for submission of the articles presented at ExRe(y) 2016 is now open. We will be accepting submissions for the post-conference volume until September 30. The collection of essays inspired by the conference’s theme will be published by Peter Lang in mid-2017.

The next ExRe(y) conference is scheduled for spring 2018. More information will be coming soon!
