Vision: University at Albany 13th Annual EGSO Conference, March 27-28, 2015

updated: 
Friday, November 14, 2014 - 10:56pm
University at Albany, SUNY

For our 13th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization invites graduate students of all disciplines to submit critical papers and creative works that address vision both literally and metaphorically. Beyond the literal act of seeing, vision connects to a desire to foresee the future and look back to the past, whether politically, economically, or aesthetically. These seemingly competing modes of vision are intrinsically related as optics both enable and limit our ability to conceptualize a future beyond what we can immediately see. Humanities scholars might consider vision in terms of visual culture, visual literacy, visual rhetorics, and/or the role of vision within classroom settings.

Captivating Criminality 2: Crime Fiction, Traditions and Transgressions. 25- 27 June

updated: 
Friday, November 14, 2014 - 9:45am
Bath Spa University

Crime fiction has traditionally been defined as a distinguishable literary form, but in what ways has this genre evolved? The various sub-genres that are encompassed under the title of crime writing, including the 'whodunnit', the Hard Boiled thriller, Golden Age narratives, and the 'whydunnit' psychological thriller, are all so varied that a defining process becomes nearly impossible. Murder, crimes, mystery, punishment and redemption are all key themes found in the genre, and yet in what ways have these changed, developed and transgressed since the traditions of the genre were first at the forefront of writers minds?

Violence Against Black and Brown Bodies - Jan 5, 2015

updated: 
Thursday, November 13, 2014 - 2:00pm
Sandra E. Weissinger

More than physical assaults, violence can take the form of dilapidated neighborhoods, gentrification efforts, economic strangleholds, caste like education systems and other institutionally based inequalities which inspire human waste and covert suicides.

To this end, Violence Against Black and Brown Bodies seeks submissions that document these assaults. Taken together, we seek to put forth a theory of violence and draft solutions for healing and justice.

Chapters can be historically based, current event inspired and from various disciplines and methodological approaches. While we encourage submissions that address one of the following themes, we also welcome other topics –so long as the concept of violence is analyzed.
