Augmented humans often star in our favourite science fictions: from the cyberpunk heroes of William Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy to the villainous Darth Vader of George Lucas's Star Wars, fictional augmented characters teach the viewer what it means to live augmented lives. And yet, cyborgs and other types of augmented individuals are not just found in science fiction.

SE Regional Conference on Christianity and Literature

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 3:41pm
Palm Beach Atlantic University/SE Conference on Christianity and Literature

Paradise is a subject that has stirred the imaginations of writers for millennia while simultaneously exceeding the scope of artistic representation itself. Poets, playwrights, and novelists have been inspired to describe in various ways that which is indescribable. Language can only approximate visions of paradise occasioned by mystical experiences such as spiritual awakenings, ecstasies, and epiphanies. Conference organizers invite papers that explore how literary artists imagine paradise, from abstract images of height and light to concrete images of sublime mountain peaks and lush seascapes. Papers are also welcome that investigate literary depictions of paradise's dark opposite, hell, and its penitential proving grounds, purgatory.

SMU Graduate Student Conference, "Self(ie)-Representation," March 22, 2014

updated: 
Monday, January 13, 2014 - 6:36pm
Southern Methodist University Graduate Student Conference

Self(ie)-Representation

The "selfie," with its many outlets and ironic iterations, has provoked critical and popular conversation celebrating the form as empowering or decrying it as narcissistic. But, though the "selfie" is relatively recent, the act of self-representation is of course very old. Autobiographies, diaries, fictional selves, privately-printed collections of poetry, obsessive editorial practices, commissioned portraits, fashionable clothing, elaborate grave markers, carefully-crafted public personae: life is the accumulation of selfies. This graduate conference seeks papers that explore such modes of self-representation and the discourses surrounding them.
