The Lehigh English Department's second annual Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference will take place on Lehigh's campus in Bethlehem, PA, on March 4th-5th, 2016. We will be accepting proposals from Master's and Doctoral students on this year's conference theme, public humanities. Public humanities takes literature and social justice out of the confines of the classroom or academic publication by balancing theoretical concepts with practical actions and projects that benefit others in order to expand participation in and appreciation for the humanities.

The all- incorporating yet inequitable disposition of the global marketplace, facilitated by the neoliberal ideologies of profit maximization, have impacted substantially on all academic disciplines in increasingly conspicuous ways. Consequently, English studies has found itself precariously poised between the values it has traditionally transmitted to its graduates and the instrumental demands of the marketplace. There is friction between, on the one hand, the humanistic outlook that it has cultivated for generations now, and, on the other, the dictates of the job market and the relentless pressure exerted by forces of capitalism on the education sector.
