Good Food / Bad Food

An interdisciplinary two-day conference to be held at the University of
Kent, July 10-12, 2008

We invite proposals for papers from scholars in literature, history,
anthropology, art history, sociology, cultural, media and film studies,
and other related fields. We would also welcome contributions from
professionals in the field of food writing, restaurant reviewing and the
like. We hope that this conference might lead to the establishment of a
more or less formal network of people working on and in food writing, and
we plan an edited volume showcasing the most exciting work in the field.

Subjects might include the following:

UPDATE: [American] 'George Oppen: A Centenary Conference', conference, Fall/Autumn 2008, Edinburgh University

Lee Spinks

2008 marks the centenary of the birth of the American poet George Oppen.
>From his early "objectivist" volume Discrete Series (1934) to the spare
and enigmatic meditations of Primitive (1978), Oppen's work consistently
interrogated the relationship between poetry and sincerity and the ground
of political and ethical value. This conference will include major
scholars from both sides of the Atlantic (including keynote addresses
from Professor Marjorie Perloff of Stanford University and Professor
Peter Nicholls of Sussex University) in order to celebrate Oppen's
centenary and to consider key aspects of his artistic achievement and
legacy.

Getting Obsessive: Culture and Excess
An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Symposium, March 28 and 29, 2008
Sponsored by USC’s Assocation of English Graduate Students and the USC
Center for Feminist Research

Keynote Speaker: Tavia Nyong’o, NYU Performance Studies.

Everyone’s a little bit obsessive; academics are usually more than a
little. But what consitutes our obsessions and what work do they do? What
is the relation between obsession and knowledge production; and what
about less legitimate obsessions, the things, places, people and cultural
forms about which we feel excessive love or hate?
