Comparative Critical Views on the Representation of Foreignness and Otherness
Acknowledgments Neither the Xenographies II Congress in September 2011 nor the publi- cation of this book would have been possible without the involvement and generous support of various organisations and institutions. The edi- tors’ thanks go in the first place to the Spanish Ministry of Education whose funding has been essential in bringing this book to fruition (FFI2011-13732-E). Next, they would like to acknowledge the institu- tional and scientific support that two academic societies have lent to this project: the Sociedad Española de Literatura General y Comparada (SELGYC) and the British Comparative Literature Association (BCLA). Their involvement provided the Xenographies II Congress with an inter- national reach that made it possible to explore the most recent avenues of comparative literature. The editors also wish to express their gratitude to all the units of Pompeu Fabra University and the University of Wolver- hampton that have backed this project both financially and administra- tively, in particular the Centre for Transnational and Transcultural Re- search (Wolverhampton) and the Departament d’Humanitats and Institut de Cultura (Pompeu Fabra). The editors are grateful to all the delegates who attended the conference and especially to the invited speakers, professors Leonardo Romero To- bar, Richard Hitchcock, Eloy Martín Corrales and the late Noel Polk. It is with great sadness that they lament the loss of the latter, who passed away during the preparation of this volume. The editors are indebted to them for their work and the academic rigour that they bring to this book. Thanks...
