Deadline Extended to December 8th!
Trance: March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

Reason Plus Enjoyment Conference 2015 10-13 July

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - 5:37am
School of Arts and Media, University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia

Next year marks the ten-year anniversary of the Rhetoric, Politics, Ethics 2005 conference in Ghent, Belgium, which gathered international scholars from a variety of critical perspectives to map recent signature events in contemporary theory. Reason Plus Enjoyment 2015 marks this occasion by inviting critical and cultural theorists to Sydney, Australia to reflect on the theoretical challenges posed in the intervening years. The remit of this second RPE conference is to read the vanishing futures of to phronein (thinking) and to kharein (enjoyment) in the twilight of what Derrida called the great Western metaphysical adventure. Joan Copjec once diagnosed our critical condition in terms of the "euthanasia of pure reason".

CFP - 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions (Due: 31 Dec. 2014)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 5:16pm
Hacettepe University, Department of English Language and Literature, 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions

The aim of this conference is to revisit the literary, artistic and cultural texts, whether they are canonical or non-canonical, from both the (English/British) West and the (Ottoman/Turkish) East, from a historical period stretching from the Medieval Period to the end of the twentieth century, and representing the encounters and exchanges between the two. One major concern of the conference is to include into the debate the discursive constructions other than "Orientalism" (i.e. possible Occidentalism(s)?, essentializing self-representations) for the purpose of expanding the scope and scale of the academic conversation in this area.

TRANS Writ Large: Writing Difference

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 5:13pm
University of Cincinnati Composition Program

The University of Cincinnati Composition Program invites proposals for the sixth annual graduate student conference to be held at the University of Cincinnati on Saturday, April 4, 2015. Our conference title this year is TRANS Writ Large: Writing Difference.

A trans perspective sees beyond the conventional, to articulate—and even inhabit—difference. From this angle of vision, difference is not a barrier, but a resource. Trans work encourages suppleness, avoiding binaries, expanding understanding of the human experience, playing with fixity and subverting it. To become something new, even if only partially and temporarily. And writing is a vehicle for acts of becoming and unbecoming.

[REMINDER] Word Hoard Issue #4: "Word of Mouth"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 1:19pm
Word Hoard/Western University

Viva voce—"with living voice," but also (and more commonly) the phenomenon of "word of mouth." When incidents of speech, song, or shouting take place, it is the mouth that transforms private impulse into audible sound. Articulatory phonetics tells us that this physiological transubstantiation is little more than the aerodynamic energy of breath rendered into sound waves, or acoustic energy. Yet when do words become more than translations, and mouths more than translating machines?

11 Literature in English Symposium: Poetry and Beyond

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 9:20am
Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

LIES 2015 asks the fundamental questions of contemporary culture: What is the stance of poetry today? Can poets still be venerated as leaders of nations? Is poetry "relegated" to universities? Muldoon's Oxford Lectures in Poetry (2006) are entitled The End of the Poem, yet like in John Donne's Holy Sonnets, the end of one poem is the beginning of the next one.

The guests of honour at LIES 2015 (15-16th May 2015) are Paul Muldoon as well as Nick Hayes, a political cartoonist and the author of the graphic novel, Rime of the Modern Mariner – and thus we are going through Poetry into the Beyond!

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World

The second issue of Angles, the new online journal published by the SAES, will aim at examining "angles and limes" in Anglo-American studies.

The purpose of this particular issue is to gather articles focusing both on the specific angles of each discipline and their limits, and on the instances when borders are crossed and limits are passed—must be passed—to further research. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals developing and clarifying their own practices as regards limits and angles.

and artistic.
