How do practices and theories relating to the nation and transnational flows, movements, and institutions function to include/exclude communities--for instance, diasporic communities. How have ideas of creolization, multiculturalism, interculturality contributed to (or limited) possibilities, and what do they promise for the future? What role does intercultural translation that is attentive to "other cultures within" play? How do we carry on the urgent re-configuring required to address these crucial challenges in the present? These questions and more are addressed by the speakers at this symposium, which included Joan Anim-Addo, Antonia MacDonald, Suzanne Scafe, Lisa Marchi Maria, Helena Lima, Viv Golding, W. Richard West, James B. Gardner, Jake Homiak, Paul Gardullo, Duncan MacInnes, Asimina Karavanta, Jean Pfaelzer, Alan Kraut, Peter Roberts, Tyechia Thompson, Andrea Wenzel, Dereje Desta Andrew Laurence and R. Victoria Arana.
