"If the authentic test for a great novel is rereading, and the joys of yet further rereading, then Pride and Prejudice can rival any novel ever written." — Harold Bloom One of the most popular works of fiction in English literature, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (1813) has withstood the tests of time and has been revisited time and again with renewed critical engagements, adaptations and popular celebration. Regardless to say, several tomes have been dedicated to this particular work over the years, and many more continue to be produced with consistency that engage with the novel across areas such as the application of literary theories, in the context of cultural studies or even popular culture.

Human Terrains: Identity, Geography, Politics
EXTENDED ABSTRACT DUE DATE: January 30th, 2015
April 10th, 11th, 12th, 2015
Keynote speech by Jasbir Puar
Master class by Marlon Ross
Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?
Our proposed collection aims to explore the meanings of crossover in the eighteenth century. The concept of crossover grew out of the uneasy reconcilement between the era's belief in the absoluteness of taxonomical categories and its paradoxical insistence on the potential malleability and manipulability of the same. Sweeping changes in the cultural scene challenged the seeming discreteness between conceptual kinds, and unleashed the possibility of transcending boundaries of all sorts.
