Silence! McGill AHCS Graduate Student Conference (24/04/15)

Silence!
McGill Art History and Communication Studies Graduate Student Conference
CFP Deadline: March 1st, 2015.
Conference Date: April 24, 2015.
McGill University, Montréal

Silence itself—the things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakers—is less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element that functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within over-all strategies. [...]There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1: An Introduction )

Borders and Crossings: Time and Space in William Carlos Williams. MLA 2016, 7-10 January, Austin (Deadline 8 March, 2015)

updated: 
Friday, February 6, 2015 - 1:02pm
William Carlos Williams Society

This panel considers the numerous ways in which the work of William Carlos Williams engages with borders and performs or problematizes crossings. Ranging from Williams's personal or literary genealogy to negotiations of borders in terms of poetics or place, we seek papers problematizing Williams's handling of tradition, Europe, the New World, and history. Other topics/questions this panel may consider are: how does Williams's work handle the concepts of space and time? How does his work make use of or skew our perception of these? Where does his work position itself in relation to those parameters?
