full name / name of organization: 
Sarah Lozier and Josh Pearson, University of California Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

This panel invites papers that explore textual encounter and interaction within religion. For many religious traditions, their religious texts become paramount—questions of texts’ creation, authenticity, authority, vision, revision, and reception, to name just a few, comprise a significant part of the field.

[UPDATE] Histories and Futures of Reading, a panel at (dis)junctions Grad Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE EXTENDED to Feb 22

full name / name of organization: 
Sarah Lozier and Josh Pearson, University of California Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

At the close of the twentieth century, the proliferation of networked digital technologies has led a number of critics to call into question the future of reading. However, in the last several years it has become increasingly clear that reading continues to be an important aspect of our cultural practice, even as it manifests itself in multiple forms. This panel invites papers that concern themselves with both the history and the future of reading.

This panel seeks papers that discuss different methods and effects of encountering language in its varying forms. These “varying forms” can be understood as different languages, in a translation studies context; as aural/oral language or visual/written language in an aesthetic, literary, or art historical context; or as a series of codes or coded information, as in a linguistic anthropology or computer studies context.

[UPDATE] Encountering Early Modern/Medieval Texts panel at (dis)junctions Grad Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE EXTENDED to Feb 22

full name / name of organization: 
Josh Pearson, University of California Riverside
contact email: 
disjunctions2013@gmail.com

This year’s (dis)junctions conference theme focuses on “encounters,” with an emphasis of the term’s foregrounding of the unexpected. However, under these conditions, true “encounters” with texts of the early modern and medieval periods, texts which have been repeatedly studied for hundreds of years, may seem unlikely. Can we truly “encounter” Shakespeare’s texts (or Chaucer’s, or Milton’s), or is that encounter always mediated by an already-constructed knowledge formation? This panel invites the submission of papers which address this improbable phenomenon of encountering the early modern and/or medieval text.
