[UPDATE] The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies: Past, Present, and Future Directions (San Diego State University, April 17-18, 2015

updated: 
Monday, September 8, 2014 - 1:45pm
SDSU LGBTQ Research Consortium

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.

The Migrating Word: Collectivities Outside State Boundaries: NeMLA Convention 2015

updated: 
Monday, September 8, 2014 - 1:01pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association

In the global present, migration is increasingly understood not as a voluntary process, but as one of forced displacement, whether for political or economic reasons. Disillusioned by the rupture of the social contract, and the failure of states to guarantee the rights of all its citizens, forcibly displaced diasporic communities seek forms of representation and expression that trouble statist interpretations of culture that have been traditionally delineated by physical geography. Troubled by the legacies of colonialism, and carrying the trauma of political upheaval and displacement, communities with a history of neglect or abuse by statist discourse have, over the past few decades turned to art forms that embrace futurism via digital media.

A New Nation of Regions

Carl Watts / ACCUTE

This session seeks to create a dialogue among scholars focusing on regional, sub-regional, and urban writing in Canada. Canadian literature and critical approaches to it have long focused on large regions such as the Prairies and the coasts rather than the nation as a whole; more recently, however, there has been a shift toward provinces and smaller regions as well as specific urban areas. I welcome proposals on any of these formations, and I hope to discuss the relationships between newer and older regionalisms. For instance, does fragmentation into smaller areas challenge previous notions of region? Is a conception of Maritime writing such as David Creelman's enriched or undermined by analyses of Cape Breton literature?

[UPDATE] New Contexts for American Poetry in the 1950's and 1960's at the Louisville Conference

updated: 
Friday, September 5, 2014 - 3:43pm
The Charles Olson Society

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville, February 26-28, 2015. We are interested in abstracts pertaining to poetry in the fifties and sixties, especially those that draw attention to uncommon readings. Though Donald Allen's influential anthology The New American Poetry divided American poetry into distinct schools (Black Mountain, San Francisco, Beat, New York) and contributed to its division into distinct styles (Experimental, Academic, and Confessional), Allen's model creates too many internal and external contradictions.

Trance: Graduate Student Conference, English Dept.,GC- CUNY, March 5-6, 2014

updated: 
Friday, September 5, 2014 - 2:09pm
Graduate Student Conference Committee, English Student Asssociation, GC-CUNY

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.

Irene Mangoutas / ACCUTE

Samuel Hynes identifies the Great War as "the great imaginative event": "not a falsification of reality, but […] the accepted interpretation of the war, repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth." With the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War just behind us, and the bicentenary of the end of the Napoleonic Wars just ahead, this panel explores the ways in which the 'great wars' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are (re)interpreted and (re)imagined, both by their contemporaries and, perhaps more pressingly, by ours.

Space and Place in World Literature

Presenters are encouraged to explore the panel's theme using a variety of methodological approaches, situating the work both within global and national contexts. Specific areas might include:
