Resistance literature includes, but is not limited to fiction, cinema, drama, poetry, visual art, and song, reflecting the various forms of political resistance throughout history. Resistance literature and media actively resist oppression or oppressive systems in a creative manner. It is one of the frameworks of art that allows movements to communicate and preserve stories of resistance.

Resistance Literature is a wide-ranging and impressive critical study of the literatures of contemporary ‘Third World’ liberation movements as they confront and alter the literary and political categories of the world. Resistance Literature also argues for the crucial political significance of literary texts and, by extension, for the necessity of an informed political commentary on those texts.

Resistance Literature not only analyses literary texts, it also concisely informs readers about some of the urgent political and cultural debates taking place within the liberation movements. Resistance Literature brings critical commentary on what were perhaps previously
unfamiliar or unknown literatures. Resistance Literature offers itself as a truly educational effort. That effort too is a “commitment to the future.” The extent of the power casted by language is far greater than it seems. Language sets the way we see the world. Language is also a form of resistance, which aims to preserve the identity. The power of the word transcends governments and political, social or territorial
limits. The conference also aims at exploring the avenues where culture intersects language. The conference may unravel the politics and pitfalls in the exclusion and inclusion of language in the cultural historiographies of the nation.
