THAT is â€"‘Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of
themselves.”

Borders and Boundaries
Graduate Conference in Literature and Rhetoric/Composition
Southern Illinois University-Carbondale
March 27-28, 2009

Our third annual Graduate Conference would like to examine the ways in
which borders and boundaries enter the dialogue of literary, cultural, and
theoretical works. How are borders and boundaries established, questioned,
or deconstructed? In what ways are these delineations significant? In
what ways do they reflect the cultural geographies of particular periods
and places?
