Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure

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 fig- ures 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.

Readings: a new journal for scholars and readers

Monday, November 17, 2014 - 5:06am
full name / name of organization: 
Dr. Alexandra Berlina

Readings is a new peer-reviewed open-access journal intended to be read by both scholars and the general public. Like other journals, we look for academic quality and originality. Unlike most, we also care for high readability and the potential interest of literature-loving non-scholars. We welcome submissions on all aspects of world literature (be it canonical or contemporary, children's, "genre" or "literary" fiction), including the interplay of literature and other media as well as issues of translation and reception. Imagine a friend who loves literature but is no scholar as your ideal reader.

For our 13th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization invites graduate students of all disciplines to submit critical papers and creative works that address vision both literally and metaphorically. Beyond the literal act of seeing, vision connects to a desire to foresee the future and look back to the past, whether politically, economically, or aesthetically. These seemingly competing modes of vision are intrinsically related as optics both enable and limit our ability to conceptualize a future beyond what we can immediately see. Humanities scholars might consider vision in terms of visual culture, visual literacy, visual rhetorics, and/or the role of vision within classroom settings.

Literary Exteriors - February 21, 2015

Boston College English Graduate Conference

How do we understand exteriors in literature? With critical study often focused on interiority, subjectivity, and soul, the outside is often overlooked or put aside. But what happens when the focus is redirected to exteriors, physicality, materiality—the tangible, ready to be touched surfaces of objects meant to be read? What happens when we pay attention to the shell rather than the spirit? The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider these literary exteriors. The question of exteriority ranges from the covers of the book a reader holds, to the bodies and objects described within, to the varied complexities of visual and material culture and their range of texts.
