Rochelle Almeida, Master Teacher of Global Cultures in the Global/Liberal Studies Program, recently presented two papers at two academic conferences.

Dr. Almeida’s paper, “Hoping Against Hope: Transnational Allusion to Eastern Religions in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Jones,” was presented at a conference on the theme of “Hope: Crossing The Boundaries” held by The Interdisciplinary Net in Lisbon, Portugal, on March 10, 2013. This paper discussed the manner in which key aspects of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainisim (as well as the Christian concept of Apostleship) are incorporated into the novel’s main themes.

“Imaginary Goan Lands: Major Post-Colonial Writers of the Goan Diaspora” was presented at a conference entitled, “Goa: A Post-Colonial Society Between Cultures,” organized by the Department of Iberian Studies at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, on April 5, 2013. Her paper, an analysis of the novels of Margaret Mascarenhas, Victor Rangel-Ribeiro, Peter Nazareth. Antonio Gomes and Suneeta Perez da Costa, was a critique of the impact of transnational consciousness upon recent Goan history.
