TRANSITIONS

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.

Definition: We talk about transitions between time periods, technologies, genres, social movements, sciences, mathematics, design and how big and small ideas permeate movements in society. What this theme should then encourage is the ability to demonstrate analysis and hold discourse on topics related to transitions applicable to any and all disciplines.

[UPDATE] The Literature of Loss

Dr Deirdre Flynn / Limerick Literary Weekend

The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?

[UPDATE] The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.

In the global present, migration is increasingly understood not as a voluntary process, but as one of forced displacement, whether for political or economic reasons. Disillusioned by the rupture of the social contract, and the failure of states to guarantee the rights of all its citizens, forcibly displaced diasporic communities seek forms of representation and expression that trouble statist interpretations of culture that have been traditionally delineated by physical geography. Troubled by the legacies of colonialism, and carrying the trauma of political upheaval and displacement, communities with a history of neglect or abuse by statist discourse have, over the past few decades turned to art forms that embrace futurism via digital media.

A New Nation of Regions

Carl Watts / ACCUTE

This session seeks to create a dialogue among scholars focusing on regional, sub-regional, and urban writing in Canada. Canadian literature and critical approaches to it have long focused on large regions such as the Prairies and the coasts rather than the nation as a whole; more recently, however, there has been a shift toward provinces and smaller regions as well as specific urban areas. I welcome proposals on any of these formations, and I hope to discuss the relationships between newer and older regionalisms. For instance, does fragmentation into smaller areas challenge previous notions of region? Is a conception of Maritime writing such as David Creelman's enriched or undermined by analyses of Cape Breton literature?

This panel seeks to explore the numerous ways scholars are approaching eighteenth century American texts and topics. We invite papers that investigate a specific interdisciplinary method through which individual and collective voices might be heard in the Americas during the long and deep eighteenth century. This panel is neither limited to North America nor to sources written only in English. We are especially interested in innovative methodologies that seek to access recorded experiences assumed to be inaccessible.
