The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 - 6:23pm
English Department of Ivy Tech Community College Northwest

The Atrium, a Journal of Academic Voices, is now in its sixth year of consistent publication. This unique journal presents a forum for the community of professionals engaged in post secondary education and research. One key focus for the journal is classroom best practices, that murky landscape we traverse between Learning Theory and Instructional Practice. The Atrium acknowledges the value of discourse in the project of uncovering the principles that might govern the development of Best Practices. Simply put, we can talk the talk, but can we walk the walk? The Atrium is meant to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines that will demonstrate how we do just that.

Mid-20th-Century American Poetry and the Question of Beauty (12/12/14; 5/21-24/15, ALA Boston)

The Charles Olson Society

"Rigor of beauty is the quest," writes Williams in his preface to "Paterson." "But how will you find beauty when it is locked in the mind past all remonstrance?" For the 2015 ALA conference in Boston, the Charles Olson Society invites proposals on Beauty and mid-twentieth-century American poetry. Although the 1950s are perhaps best known for the rise of the Beats, the Confessionals, and the Black Mountain poets, these were also the years of Adrienne Rich's formalist work ("Aunt Jennifer's Tigers"), as well as some of the best work of Richard Wilbur, Theodore Roethke, and other strong poets working with traditional forms.

What Constitutes Food Edited Collection (abstracts due 12/15/14)

Food culture has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, moving to the forefront of many global and local cultural discourses. Among these discourses are the revival of old and/or dying culinary traditions, the promotion of exotic or underappreciated dishes, global fusion cooking, food and travel, ethical food consumption, the political and social dimensions of food production and consumption, and an examination of the potential for, and limitations to, eating sustainably. While much attention has been paid to practical, aesthetic, and social considerations of food, less has been examined concerning the semiotic and constructed aspects of food culture, in particular, what constitutes food, and for whom.

Women Writing North: ACCUTE 2015

Monday, October 20, 2014 - 3:06pm
ACCUTE

It is common to conceive of Canada's North, especially in its early history, as a barren frontier conquerable only by the hardiest of men. However, as Barbara Kelcey's Alone in Silence: European Women in the Canadian North Before 1940 outlines, an estimated five hundred women or more traversed the Northwest Territories before World War II. While some of these women were the wives of missionaries or explorers, others were career-women in their own rights—artists, nurses, missionaries, entrepreneurs, or explorers.

Sexual (Dis)continuities: A Graduate Student Conference

updated: 
Monday, October 20, 2014 - 12:07pm
CUNY Graduate Center, Department of French

Foucault's influence on the field of sexuality studies is undeniable, yet many scholars have taken him to task for his famous assertion that the nineteenth-century gave birth to the homosexual as "un personnage" whereas the sodomite was simply "un sujet juridique". These distinctions between acts and persona, between alterity and continuum have been vigorously analyzed and debated by scholars in all areas of sexuality studies, including hetero-, homo- and queer sexualities. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick sharply criticized this divide as presupposing that the modern homosexual is a "coherent definitional field", and that earlier sexual categories simply disappear as new ones take over.
