University of Ottawa - Canadian Literature Symposium

As a writer of poems, novels, and non-fiction, Robert Kroetsch had a tremendous impact on Canadian literature and culture. His body of work has consistently been cited as the standard for innovation in Canadian literature. Likewise, it is nearly impossible to discuss Canadian writing in general without alluding to his criticism.

Understanding Kroetsch's far-reaching influence on Canadian letters, the University of Ottawa's Department of English will be hosting a two-day conference on April 28-29, 2017. Proposals are invited for this major conference. All topics are welcome, including biographical, literary, and new methodologies of reading Kroetsch's many writings.

"Archives and the Management of Sex" at PAMLA Nov. 11-13

Saturday, April 23, 2016 - 6:34pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association 2016 (Pasadena, CA)

This panel will explore how institutions dedicated to the collection, preservation, and circulation of material knowledge manage sexuality. Sex materials create conflicting imperatives for librarians. As one collections curator at the New York Public Library recently told a reporter, "We needed to collect life as it was lived… It was always part of our mandate." Yet librarians at NYPL also had a mandate to protect the mass of pornographic magazines, pulp novels, and fliers they collected by carefully regulating access to them. Until recently, sex materials at NYPL labeled with three stars required supervision. That one example illustrates how sequestration generally determines who can read about sex and under what conditions.
