In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies, The University of Dayton invites you to join us March 29, 2014 for a graduate conference devoted to an exploration of the space and place that words create. How does space inform our identities as writers? How do we perceive space, literally and figuratively, in literature? How does race or gender influence the space we are given, or take, in society? Where is our place in the classroom and what can we do with it?
Call for Papers
Literati 2014: Speaking Bodies
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI
Textual bodies have long served as a battleground for conceiving of the human body. Through the lens of literature, people have fathomed the body's limits, its relationship to identity, its ability to liberate or enchain. Literati 2014's theme, "Speaking Bodies," asks, What does it mean to be embodied, and what are the consequences of conceiving of human or textual bodies as "legible"? Who or what gets to establish the limits of these bodies? How are they able to transform or be transformed?

In a world of instant news updates, Wikipedia, and Twitter, memory seems a thing of the past. This instantaneity shapes the way we consider knowledge. In recent years, the rise of digital technology and communication has generated debates around global movements and this has shaped the way the past is recuperated into historical memory. The recent turn to archival memory in both theoretical discourses and artistic practices suggests a need to develop a new set of conceptual, literary, and aesthetic tools with which to understand, interpret, and problematize notions of the past and of memory.
The deadline for paper and panel proposals is 31 January 2014.
A workshop with Dr Christine Cusick has been added to the conference offerings.
