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.
We welcome submissions of original research from any discipline in the humanities and social sciences. Papers may address a full range of topics and historical periods. Topics may include, but are not limited to: art and propaganda, gender, race, ethnicity and identity, post-colonial and post-modern theory, nationalism and religion, performance art, photography and film, Web 2.0 and social media, mediated communication and digital representation, art and technology, politics and elections.
To be considered for our Fall 2011 Issue, papers must be submitted by Friday, September 30.

The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University
LSU Student Union
February 16th & 17th, 2012
Keynote Address by Meredith McGill, Rutgers University
The literary canon, that sacred body of texts and genres that we deem high art, stands surrounded today by rapidly expanding interests in newer or long-neglected works. 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.

The teaching of writing is characterized by a wide array of practices, often cycling through popular phases or trends. When evaluating the potential effectiveness of instructional methods, many educators rely on descriptive and anecdotal publications, as the literature is replete with them. Although these publications have merit in their ability to disseminate ideas, how can faculty transcend the descriptive and the anecdotal when determining the most effective means of teaching writing?
