The beginning of my presentation at the XVI International Bakhtin Conference, Shanghai, China


































Last week, I presented some of my dissertation research at the XVI International Bakhtin Conference: Bakhtin in the Post-Revolutionary Era in Shanghai, China 6-10 September 2017. It was an amazing opportunity to not only share my own work but to also learn about the wide-ranging scholarship that focuses on Mikhail Bakhtin from a variety of perspectives and topics. The best part was meeting so many gifted scholars who share an excitement for Bakhtin and experiencing a new country and city with my companions, both long standing and newly met, since it was my first trip to China. I am thankful to have connected with so many other scholars and I am looking forward to future collaborations.

The photos capture some of the highlights during the conference including a cultural field trip to Suzhou, China. I only wish that I had taken more photos, had more time to connect over Bakhtin, and see more art.
