We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

Italo Calvino once asked, "who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while the question maintains its relevance, isn't it about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts produced and the environments in which they are produced?

The 4th Annual English Graduate Student Association Conference
Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD and Samantha Pinto, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: EXTENDED to January 9, 2015

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.

In a time when even Bridget Jones finds herself in her early fifties, it may at first glance seem unwarranted to speak of the invisibility of ageing women in literary and cultural contexts. In fact, in a review of Mad about the Boy in The Times, Sarah Lyall writes that, "Bridget's amorous adventures … make the prospect of middle age not so bad at all". Constructions like this open up questions about representations of women and ageing. What types of images of the "ageing woman" are created in cultural texts? Do women in later life, in order to become visible, need to find ways to "pass" as younger so that "age shall not wither them" as Kira Cochraine puts it in an article in The Guardian?
