The history of consciousness is the history of the evolution of culture across millennia, between biological forms, and amongst societies. The theoretical ideas and representations of consciousness are expressed through such disciplines and phenomena as literature, art, religion, science, death, mysticism, and technology - to name only a few – and are often divisive in regards to age, gender, (dis)ability, animality, and materiality.

Major Minors: Neglected and New Issues in Literary Studies

The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University

LSU Student Union

February 16th & 17th, 2012

Keynote Address by Meredith McGill, Rutgers University

A major form, a major author, or a major style of analysis often dominates and overshadows the lesser known and more obscure. Meanwhile, archival efforts and the expanding resources of the internet have made available works and authors otherwise inaccessible, opening study to vast materials heretofore unknown or ignored.
