The English Department at UNA welcomes you to participate in this year’s Graduate Conference: Migration: Shifting to and fro and In-between

While influxes of immigrants/migrants/refugees arriving to the U.S. dominate conceptualizations of identity and belonging, it is vital to analyze our deeper understandings of migration. Migration—the act of moving from one place to another—exists in a number of ways, not just geographically. So, how do our limited ways of thinking of migration affect its potential in certain fields/entities/theories?

In the wake of environmental catastrophe, developing knowledge on animal and artificial intelligences, and the living legacy of coloniality, we are once again faced with these eternally recurring questions: What is the human? What is beyond the human? What are the consequences of shifting conceptualizations of the human? Many schools of thought examining eco-criticism, posthumanism, post-colonialism, and more now confront these previously established boundaries, interrogating the ways in which our construction of ‘the human’ and consciousness has left us blind to other agencies and existences in the world.

The materiality of the body confounds us; it forces a reconsideration of the “linguistic turn,” perhaps even the “social constructionist” turn, by which we understand the world and identity as linguistically or socially constituted. But how do we look at bodies –our own, the first bodies exhibited to us as children, the bodies of clowns and circus performers, or even the bodies of everyday folks with impairments—people who are like us but also somehow different? And what knowledge do such encounters create or reify?
