CFP: Neil Gaiman (grad) (2/1/06; disjunctions, 4/7/06-4/8/06)

This call for papers is a proposed panel to be held at Disjunctions, the
University of California,
Riverside's 13th Annual Humanities Conference, April 7-8, 2006. In keeping
with this year's
theme, Lost in Translation, this panel attempts to investigate how Neil
Gaiman's work translates
into academia.

Although he is probably best known for his Sandman series of graphic novels,
Gaiman is
also an acclaimed novelist. In an attempt to unify Gaiman's canon, this
panel welcomes readings
of both the Sandman and of his novels: Neverwhere, Good Omens, Stardust,
American Gods,
Coraline, and Anansi Boys.

EGSA Colloquium

Remnants, Remainders, and Reconceptualizations
March 23-25, 2006
English Graduate Students Association
Department of English
York University
Toronto, Canada

*Extended Deadline for Abstracts: January 30th, 2006*

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?
