Graduate Students & the Public Sphere, in NYC, Feb 28, 2015

Monday, November 17, 2014 - 1:07pm
Graduate Student Association of Fordham University Interdisciplinary Conference

The work of graduate students is an increasingly public business. Yet graduate training typically features little to no training in how to navigate this brave new world. Those who mentor and teach graduate students are often hesitant to offer advice, and institutions are slow to recognize the value of public scholarship. Much of the best thinking on public scholarship has come from graduate students, adjuncts, and other populations that are often marginalized in the university. This panel will seek to contribute to this ongoing grassroots recalibration of graduate education.

Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure

The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015

Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

Readings: a new journal for scholars and readers

Dr. Alexandra Berlina

Readings is a new peer-reviewed open-access journal intended to be read by both scholars and the general public. Like other journals, we look for academic quality and originality. Unlike most, we also care for high readability and the potential interest of literature-loving non-scholars. We welcome submissions on all aspects of world literature (be it canonical or contemporary, children's, "genre" or "literary" fiction), including the interplay of literature and other media as well as issues of translation and reception. Imagine a friend who loves literature but is no scholar as your ideal reader.
