CALL FOR PAPERS: Associated Graduate Students of English Conference

PoliText: How Writers Respond to Political Issues March 28, 2009 9:00am-
4:30pm

Although some may argue that everything is political, there are certain
moments in history that have a particular political intensity. At those
significant times, writers across the globe involve themselves in the
political scene and their texts - both literary and non-literary - engage
in the political environment. The theme "PoliText" has been chose for
AGSE's 2009 Graduate Student Conference to highlight the intersection of
politics and text - whether the texts be written or visual, literary or
rhetorical analysis or original creative work.

Monday, February 2, 2009 - 3:08pm
Daniel A. Novak

UPDATE: Extended Deadline

In recent decades, Oscar Wilde has been theorized as a figure who
represented a historical shift or a displacement in how we think of
identity, gender, and sexuality. This panel invites papers that interrogate
these critical assumptions, broadly addressing Wilde's own thinking about
the relationship between history and identity. Papers may also focus on the
critical reception of Wilde from the early 20th century to the present.

This is a special session for the SCMLA 2009 conference in Baton Rouge, LA.
The theme of the conference is "Continuity and Displacement." A panel will
be chosen by February 20 and selected panels will be announced by March 2009.

Widely claimed to be the father of cyberpunk, William Gibson won the
Hugo, the Nebula and the Philip K. Dick awards for Neuromancer (1984).
Twenty-five years on, what is the legacy of this novel? How has it shaped
the contemporary field of science fiction? What are its influences on
literature, music, gaming culture, graphic novel and film? I am seeking
presentations examining the impact of Neuromancer as well as new
theoretical, critical and historical approaches to the study of the
novel. Possible topics include the urban, paranoia, drugs, the internet,
mainstreaming cyberpunk, addiction, cyber noir, the figure of the hacker,
and the razorgirl.
