Norm and anomaly have long constituted a binary opposition whose boundaries are becoming increasingly blurry and open to scrutiny. What precisely does the 'norm' mean? Which political, economic, and social forces play a decisive role in producing the 'norm'? How is the 'norm' endorsed through the construction of the 'anomaly'? And how does the 'anomaly' contest the 'norm'? Can the 'norm' be anomalous when viewed as a discursive practice and a form of ideological control? And can the 'anomaly' be an integral part of the 'norm' without losing its subversive and oppositional character?

15 March 2016 Age in Atwood and/or Lessing (MLA 2017)

Margaret Atwood Society

"Boundaries of Life: Ageism and Aging in Works by Margaret Atwood and Doris Lessing." This session, co-sponsored by the Margaret Atwood Society and the Doris Lessing Society, is inspired by the 2017 Presidential Theme, "Boundary Conditions." By focusing on ageism and aging in the works of Atwood and Lessing, two of the twentieth century's most prolific and influential women writers, this panel aims to explore the ways these writers depict the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Some questions papers might answer include: What does it mean to come of age? How do age and the aging process affect how we see ourselves? When and how does one become old? How does age discrimination shape societies and individuals?

Movement and stasis. Routes to and from home. Boundaries and belonging. Local places and global spaces. The possibilities for and barriers to mobility shape the way that communities, cultures, and individuals communicate with one another. Mobility influences interconnectivity across time and space as well as the formation of hierarchies of domination and subordination.

Shifting Tides, Anxious Borders: A Graduate Student Conference in Transnational American Studies (7th Annual) Binghamton University

"Shifting Tides, Anxious Borders" is an interdisciplinary graduate conference dedicated to exploring the changing contours of the field of American Studies. This year's conference theme, "Occupying Nations and Exceptional (dis)Placements," focuses on the theme of exile, otherness, and displacement in local, national, and global contexts. We aim to think transnational American Studies in relationship to occupied spaces of nation and state; we are interested in how these occupations enact, normalize, and hegemonize imperial logics and their displacing effects - materially, historically, and ontologically.
