**KEYNOTE SPEAKER JAMES P. GEE**

Come see one of the foremost names in literacy studies and discourse analysis (James P. Gee, of course!) while thawing out in the warm desert sun.

Conference date: February 6th & 7th, 2015

Submission Deadline: December 1st, 2014

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Grainne O'Brien

Since the release of Marvel's Thor along with its sequel and the Avengers Assemble movies, there has been a renewed interest in Loki, the Trickster God.

Tom Hiddleston's depiction of this legendary character has seen Loki become an international household name. But how much is Marvel responsible (if at all) for Loki's now mainstream status?

This collection will examine any and all representations of Loki from his appearance in Norse Mythology, up to his appearance in comics, films, TV series, and novels today.

Public Intellectuals Lecture Series

Carleton University

Public Intellectuals Lecture Series
Presented by the Department of English and Literature at Carleton University and the Ottawa Public Library
Call for Papers

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series aims to create a bridge between scholars in the Arts and the general public. While the complex ideas these scholars help develop have important, real world applications to the way we understand and interact with each other, they are often couched in jargon and confined to the journals and lecture halls of the academic sphere. This lecture series will offer a venue and format in which scholars can present these ideas to the public in an accessible manner.

Translating Queer / Queer Translations

updated: 
Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - 2:19pm
full name / name of organization: 
Domenic A. Beneventi / Association of Canadian and Quebec Literatures (ACQL)

The 2014 ACQL sessions on "Queer Frontiers in Canadian and Quebec Literatures" sought to explore the notion of the frontier as a discursive concept to describe the multiple forms of embodied, spatialized, scripted, and lived LBGTQ realities and communities. Given the significant interest on the topic, we propose to further this inquiry in a call for a special session on Queer Translation / Translating Queerness. We invite papers that examine the intersections between queer texts and subjects in Canadian / Quebec literatures and the practices, methodologies, and theories of translation.
