[UPDATE] The Task of the Critic: March 25-26, 2011

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 4:25pm
Yale University

What is at stake when we read a text? What do we mean when we call ourselves literary critics or practitioners of critical theory, literary theory, or men and women of letters? This conference calls out to those who practice close reading and invites them to reflect on what happens in the critical moment of reading. We are preoccupied with the question of the status of the material produced by the reader of texts. What is the task of the writer of "secondary literature"?

PCEA Conference - Narratives of Travel & Navigation: English by Water, Air, Land, and Imagination

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 1:01pm
Pennsylvania College English Association

Erie, Pennsylvania, the state's only port city, has historically served as a center for maritime and rail travel. Its waters were vital to winning wars and providing a point of arrival for immigrants. Erie's remote location and close proximity to the Canadian border also offered a conduit for those escaping slavery. Narratives of travel have long served to document the course of peoples' physical and imaginative movements. They have recorded minute details of lived experience as well as aspirations for the future and fears of the unknown, creating histories of time and place, directing individual lives, and shaping cultural realities.
