[UPDATE] Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline (MadLit) – Proposals by 12/18/15; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

UW-Madison MadLit Graduate Student Conference

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.

Folk and Indigenous Religions in American Literature

American Religion and Literature Society

The American Religion and Literature Society, affiliated with the American Literature Association, invites papers exploring how folk and indigenous religious traditions serve to unsettle or redefine conventional assumptions about religion's engagement with literature, about the secularity of American literature, or about the way literary scholarship traditionally delineates disciplinary boundaries between American literature and world literature. We welcome studies pertaining to all indigenous and folk religious traditions, broadly defined, and from all theoretical perspectives.

Please submit a 500-word abstract by January 4, 2016 to Ray Horton at rlh137@case.edu. Electronic submissions only.
