Migration(s): Body, Word, Spirit

Migration(s) of various sorts—of people, information, political, religious, and cultural

movements—have long transformed the periods, places, and paradigms in which they

occur. Recent scholarship has underlined the fundamental importance of migrations in

the medieval and early modern periods. Intrinsically interesting in their original

context, these historic migrations also provide much-needed perspective on the

migrations our world is currently experiencing.

The (Dis)Order of Things: Mechanisms of Power and Control

Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 19, 2017

Our Fall 2017 Comparative Studies Student Association Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on questions of power.  Where is power found? How does power exert control? Power and control form the foundation of relationships within institutions (government, gender, self, etc.) but also invite conflict. These concepts serve to establish order and stability, but can also inspire disorder and a desire to destabilize when they become oppressive. Understanding the mechanisms of power and how they exert control, how power and control are distributed, becomes imperative in understanding and possibly resolving conflict.

With The Letters of Sylvia Plath, Volume 1, Plath’s words and experiences will be drawn together to give readers a fuller insight into her creative process and richly artistic literary life.
