I will be chairing a panel on Ancient-Modern Relations at November's Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association's conference in San Francisco. The conference tends to be wide-ranging, so work on anything related to the topic is welcome. Of particular interest are issues related to: Romanticism, the C19, and Modernism; "Orientalism" and/in the Ancient World; Postcolonial approaches to and definitions of the "Ancient"; and Critical Theory's debt to Ancient Philosophy.

But again, this is a broadly defined panel, and all proposals dealing with Ancient and Modern Relations are welcome.

The conference dates are November 6-7, 2009, in San Francisco.

States of Crisis
Friday, 9 October 2009
Brandeis University
Department of English and American Literature
Seventh Annual Graduate Conference

Since its origin in the ancient Greek krisis, "decision," related to krites, a judge, the term crisis has referred to ideas of discernment, evaluation, criticism, and sifting of evidence. In literary studies, for example, one can see moments of crisis in shifting aesthetics and changing genres as well as in literary tradition(s), character representation, and ideas of narrative. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship, this conference will explore different responses to the idea of crisis in the humanities and social sciences.
