Boston College Philosophy Department 10th Annual Graduate Student Conference
On Education
March 20-21 2009

Plato gave us a remarkable image: through the process of education, the
student leaves behind the shackles and darkness of a cave and ascends to
knowledge of the divine forms. That process has practical consequences,
which the prisoner faces in returning to the cave and transforming the
community.

>From DW Griffith’s take on American history in Birth of a Nation to
Steven Spielberg’s version of a 50s con artist in Catch Me If You Can,
Hollywood has searched for “the story” in history, reorganizing the
chronology of events to sell history on the Big Screen . How fictive is
history on the Big Screen?
Proposals are being accepted for the Historical Fiction Area of the 2009

CFP: [American] Poe and Information Technologies (12/19, 10/08/09), Proposed Panel for Poe Bicentennial Confere

updated: 
Wednesday, November 5, 2008 - 7:08pm
Les Harrison

In his 1845 essay, "Anastatic Printing," Edgar Allan Poe looks with hope
toward the advent of new information technologies which would democratize
the publishing process, freeing the author from the "magazine prison-house"
and allowing him to, "arrange his pages to suit himself, and stereotype
them instantaneously, as arranged" interspersing "them with his own
drawings, or with anything to please his own fancy, in the certainty of
being fairly brought before his readers, with all the freshness of his
original conception about him" (230). The libratory rhetoric is, no doubt,
familiar to scholars of the world wide web and the assorted "new medias"
and information technologies of the past fifteen years.

CFP: [Gender Studies] Voicing the Future in Latina/o Literature (ALA 5/21-5/25 2008)

Elizabeth Anne Jacobs

The panel will explore expressions of the future in Latino/a theatre,
poetry and performance. Papers may focus on one text or performance, on
works by one author, or on multiple writers/performers within the Latino/a
ethnic group. Papers are sought that explore various kinds of imagined
futures in terms of dystopic or utopic environments, landscapes and
communities; political futures; gendered subjectivities and racial
constructions. I am particularly interested in essays that explore how
these futures are articulated and physically expressed, and hope to get
papers that examine these representations in contemporary Latina/o theatre,
performance and poetry.

CFP: [Gender Studies] Unmothers/Mothering in American Women's Writing: SSAWW Conference 2009

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2008 - 4:13pm
Dr. Maglina Lubovich

Feminist theory and literary criticism has had much to say about the role
of motherhood in American literature, from theories of “republican
motherhood” to early domestic manuals like Lydia Maria Child’s The
Mother’s Book, from the maternal (and/or the absent mother) in women’s
sentimental fiction to the slave narrative, from the connection between
motherhood and creativity to the mother’s psychic power in psychoanalytic
terms.
