The Hwa Kang International Conference on English Language and Literature is an annual conference organized by the Department of English Language and Literature at Chinese Culture University to encourage intellectual exchanges and academic dialogues between scholars in Taiwan and around the world. In 2013 the conference theme will be Exploring Discourse: Trends and Applications in Language and Literature. The conference organizers want to explore the idea of “discourse” as we find it in the fields of linguistics, language teaching, literature and cultural studies, and in the study of language, communication and texts.

Critical Identities: Finding and Expressing Critical Identities in Humanities Scholarship [10/15/12;2/15/13]

full name / name of organization: 
Natures 2013 hosted by La Sierra University (Riverside, California USA)
contact email: 
gradengl@lasierra.edu

Have you tied the knot yet? Or are you still playing the field? Are you a committed feminist, poststructuralist, or ecocritic? Or do you pick up a critical perspective for one project and then using another for the next? Do you still fondly cling to your first love of close reading?

Papers are solicited for this one-day conference that either demonstrate critical identities in action (e.g. a feminist reading of Moby Dick) and/or interrogate the process by which critical identities are found (e.g. how I came to realize that I was a feminist while studying Moby Dick). While the organizers are particularly interested in papers with an environmental focus, submissions from any critical perspective and from any field in the humanities are encouraged. Interdisciplinary papers, hybrid criticism (e.g. ecofeminism), and pre-formed panels are welcomed.
