[UPDATE]Talking Tongues, Speaking Gestures: International Conference on Orality & Performance (01/12-13-14/10; Deadline10/15/09)

updated: 
Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 11:26pm
Jadavpur University

The oral, as a system of communication, while connecting the speaker and the listener in a network of communitic experiences, produces epistemological parameters status for the individual and the community.The three day-international conference will dwell on the questions of epistemology, identity and agency as emanating from the oral within the social—including indigenous and the cosmopolitan life worlds—without inviting/invoking an essential distinction between the two. Moreover, the conference will also address performance as an integral part of orality to understand the link and rupture between the sacred and the profane and between history and memory. It will inaugurate memory as mobilizing cognition and subjectivity.

[Update] Footnotes: New Directions in David Foster Wallace Studies

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 6:34pm
CUNY Graduate Center

REMINDER DEADLINE 8/15

"These academics' arguments seem sound as far as they go..." –Infinite Jest

The critical discussion of David Foster Wallace has thus far been limited to a few aspects of his most popular works. Our conference seeks to expand the response beyond the popular imagination's categories of "difficult," "postmodern," and "genius," and beyond the author's own articulation of his project as a response to irony. We invite a reconsideration of Wallace with an emphasis on new perspectives of his entire oeuvre.
