FASS Literary Academic Presents Keynotes

30th November 2020

In November 2020, Dr Hannah Ho from the English Studies programme in FASS gave two keynote presentations at international conferences that were organised by Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNNES).

These conferences were the 9th English Language Teaching and Literature (ELTLT) held on 14-15 November 2020 and the 3rd UNNES Student Conference on 28th November 2020.

On 14 November 2020, she presented on the topic of “Revitalising Literature’s Role in IR4”, which was attended by over 190 participants. On 28 November 2020, her keynote dealt with “Supermodernity in Literature” and was attended by over 160 participants. Participants included graduate students, academic scholars, and researchers from Southeast Asia and beyond.

Dr Hannah’s presentations discussed Anglophone Bruneian literature in terms of speculative fiction. It highlighted contemporary Bruneian fiction by introducing it into the literary debates and scholarly discourses that are shaped by both regional and international movements.

Both her presentations are now available on YouTube.
