The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: 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.

The Atrium, a Journal of Academic Voices, is now in its sixth year of consistent publication. This unique journal presents a forum for the community of professionals engaged in post secondary education and research. One key focus for the journal is classroom best practices, that murky landscape we traverse between Learning Theory and Instructional Practice. The Atrium acknowledges the value of discourse in the project of uncovering the principles that might govern the development of Best Practices. Simply put, we can talk the talk, but can we walk the walk? The Atrium is meant to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines that will demonstrate how we do just that.

"Rigor of beauty is the quest," writes Williams in his preface to "Paterson." "But how will you find beauty when it is locked in the mind past all remonstrance?" For the 2015 ALA conference in Boston, the Charles Olson Society invites proposals on Beauty and mid-twentieth-century American poetry. Although the 1950s are perhaps best known for the rise of the Beats, the Confessionals, and the Black Mountain poets, these were also the years of Adrienne Rich's formalist work ("Aunt Jennifer's Tigers"), as well as some of the best work of Richard Wilbur, Theodore Roethke, and other strong poets working with traditional forms.

Sexual (Dis)continuities: A Graduate Student Conference

CUNY Graduate Center, Department of French

Foucault's influence on the field of sexuality studies is undeniable, yet many scholars have taken him to task for his famous assertion that the nineteenth-century gave birth to the homosexual as "un personnage" whereas the sodomite was simply "un sujet juridique". These distinctions between acts and persona, between alterity and continuum have been vigorously analyzed and debated by scholars in all areas of sexuality studies, including hetero-, homo- and queer sexualities. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick sharply criticized this divide as presupposing that the modern homosexual is a "coherent definitional field", and that earlier sexual categories simply disappear as new ones take over.

Access: Redefining Disability and Mobility Studies

Duquesne University/ English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access, especially in pre- and early modern literary cultures. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite literary, historical, and cultural considerations of access. Historically, who has had access? How do texts navigate the political, economic, social, etc. constraints on access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious literary spaces?
