The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.

D. H. Lawrence: Colonial, Modernist and Postcolonial Perspectives
Wed., June 29 –Sunday, July 3, 2011
The D. H. Lawrence Society of North America invites you to attend the 12th international conference in Sydney, Australia, June 29-July 3, 2011. Our goal is to bring together scholars interested in all aspects of D. H. Lawrence's writing with those interested in its reception by modernist, post-modernist, and postcolonial writers. When Lawrence arrived in Sydney in 1922, two decades after Federation, Australia was consciously redefining its relation to its colonial past and imagining new nationalist futures, as Lawrence recognized in Kangaroo.
