Your salonniere got the chance to present ideas on transnationalism, diaspora and the craft of writing global fiction at two academic conferences in Oxford, UK and Lisbon, Portugal, which you can read from the original post “Inciting the Global Imagination in Oxford & Lisbon”.
the two conferences couldn’t have been more different. The first one was small and intimate. Forty attendees maximum aside from the two organizers, everyone present sat on a panel, so attendance was expected through the duration of the conference. Conversely, at the New University of Lisbon, I never got a hold of how many attendees were present because people were always coming and going. Half of the presentations were in Portuguese, so panel attendance was uneven depending on which language was spoken.
