Emerging Voices in Irish Studies DEADLINE EXTENDED

updated: 
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 8:31am
University of Connecticut Irish Studies Alliance
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2018

The University of Connecticut’s Irish Studies Alliance will hold a graduate student conference that aims to bring together new and emerging scholars in the field from colleges and universities throughout the Northeast. We are interested in papers that highlight recent and developing debates in Irish Studies and showcase the ways emerging voices participate in these conversations. Due to this conference’s focus on emerging voices in the field, we will accept undergraduate and graduate student work. We invite papers from a wide array of disciplines and encourage interdisciplinary work as well as scholarship that uses innovative methodologies.

*Deadline: Dec. 15* - American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 6, 2018

updated: 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 10:18am
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Junot Díaz, Yusef Komunyakaa and Carolyn Forché, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

“…montage-like storytelling and fragmented poetry explores the cracks in the discourse of modernity through which the narrative of [our new age] grows like weeds on rubble.” -Gabriele Dürbeck

Can the Migrant Speak?

“Can the Migrant Speak?”
Romance Languages and Literatures Graduate Student Conference Harvard University
April 6-7, 2018

Keynote Speakers:
Prof. Sandra Ponzanesi (Utrecht University)
Prof. Amy Sara Carroll (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)

“Can the Migrant Speak?” engages with the figure and agency of the migrant. It is not often that we hear about - or listen to - the migratory experience from those undergoing it themselves. By asking this question during a time of tumultuous political change, we directly address the roles of our disciplines, and academia as a whole, in relation to this issue that continues to shape lives across the globe in powerful ways.
