Conrad was an experimenter, playing with forms, genres, narrative modes, literary conventions, on which a transnational approach sheds a new light, underlining aspects of his texts like the presence of a variety of languages, cultures, genres, traditions or his ideological ambiguity.

It is such an approach that motivated the international conference in Limoges (France) held on 21-22 September, 2017. Contributors to this volume of L’Epoque Conradienne have considered Conrad and his works from a transnational perspective in order to explore how we read them both as aesthetic and ethical artefacts nowadays, and why we find the questions they broach so often so close to us.
