The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015
Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as figures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps, one of the spy genre's most influential novels. With its roots in the 19th century, the genre evolved and diversified throughout the 20th century, providing, as Michael Denning writes, a 'cover story' that has rendered 'the political and cultural transformations of the twentieth century into the intrigues of a shadow world of secret agents'. Capturing the ever-evolving zeitgeist of cultural and political anxieties, the genre has encompassed (and exploited) 'hot' wars and 'cold', and most recently a global War on Terror.
Both popular and scholarly press has been confronting the changing role of higher education, from Frank Donoghue's Last Professor to Henry Giroux and Kostas Myrsiades's collection Beyond the Corporate University. Technology, economic shifts, and cultural-existential needs change roles for faculty, students, and administration. Many incoming scholars face a "brave new world" of increased adjunct positions, declining tenure, MOOCs, reduced pure research, and students who may not fit traditional models. Finding a new home in this shifting world may prove difficult or exciting, depending on the outlook.

Hostile Intelligences and The General Antagonism
CALL FOR PAPERS
"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
This two-day interdisciplinary conference organized by the Joint Graduate Program of Communication and Culture at Ryerson University and York University seeks to explore the theme of thresholds. The steering committee invites submissions of all academic and creative contributions that respond to the theme from the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Submissions for Papers: Please submit 250 word abstracts for 15-minute presentations, along with a brief 50-word biography and contact information, or a 500-word proposal for 50-minute panels/roundtables, to email@example.com by January 9th, 2015.
