Deadline Extended to December 8th!
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.

Human Terrains: Identity, Geography, Politics

University of Virginia Graduate English Student Association

Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?

CFP - 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions (Due: 31 Dec. 2014)

Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 5:16pm
Hacettepe University, Department of English Language and Literature, 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions

The aim of this conference is to revisit the literary, artistic and cultural texts, whether they are canonical or non-canonical, from both the (English/British) West and the (Ottoman/Turkish) East, from a historical period stretching from the Medieval Period to the end of the twentieth century, and representing the encounters and exchanges between the two. One major concern of the conference is to include into the debate the discursive constructions other than "Orientalism" (i.e. possible Occidentalism(s)?, essentializing self-representations) for the purpose of expanding the scope and scale of the academic conversation in this area.

[REMINDER] Word Hoard Issue #4: "Word of Mouth"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 1:19pm
Word Hoard/Western University

Viva voce—"with living voice," but also (and more commonly) the phenomenon of "word of mouth." When incidents of speech, song, or shouting take place, it is the mouth that transforms private impulse into audible sound. Articulatory phonetics tells us that this physiological transubstantiation is little more than the aerodynamic energy of breath rendered into sound waves, or acoustic energy. Yet when do words become more than translations, and mouths more than translating machines?
