Rice University English Graduate Symposium

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.

The English Countryside
(18th-21st centuries)
Identities, Mutations, and Representations

Research on British rural spaces is often given less exposure than urban studies (urbanisation, gentrification, inner cities, architectural feats, etc.). This may be justified by the fact that, since the Victorian era, the population, economic activities and jobs have been mainly concentrated in urban conurbations. Less than 15% of Britons live in the countryside, which nonetheless still makes up 80% of Britain.

On 12 May 2015, five days after the Tories secured a parliamentary majority in the general election, the Guardian reported that David Cameron was "expected to lay out his plans for a parliament of 'blue-collar Conservatism'" to his cabinet. References to "working people" recurred in the election campaign, and Cameron's comments suggest that they remain a site of political dispute even after their votes have been counted, a category parties struggle to control and mobilize. "Working people" themselves have been conspicuously absent from this process, though, and the term "working class," with its radical connotations and history, has been relatively little used.
