[UPDATE] A New Sense of Place: Travel and Alterity in Southern Literature (Special Topics Panel, LSU Mardi Gras Conference)

full name / name of organization: 
LSU English Graduate Student Association
contact email: 
mmil132@lsu.edu

In her 2011 Southscapes: Geographies of Race, Region, and Literature, scholar Thadious Davis revivifies the idea of place in southern literature. It is such reconsiderations of southern places as dynamic spaces that this panel will explore. The 2013 Mardi Gras Conference theme is “In Momentum: Literature, Travel, and Alterity.” (See http://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/node/47987 for the conference-wide CFP.) This timely theme asks for a discussion of notions of place and space, for considerations of how travel and movement, boundedness and freedom, can be considered in terms of literature, art, science, thought. Under that larger umbrella of movement and travel, this panel will explore the broad themes of travel, the related discourses of globalization, migration, space, and place, and connected issues regarding alterity in the literature of the American South.

“Who is it that can tell me who I am?” – King Lear


The mere idea of self is as elusive as time, but writers, filmmakers and artists often give us clues as to how we view ourselves and others through their works. This issue of the St. John’s Humanities Review seeks to identify how individuals define their sense of “self” by exploring perceptions of Self in Society through Literature and the Arts.
