CCUSB SYMPOSIUM: Theorising the Canada-US Border
University of Kent at Paris, 15-16 May, 2015
The English Graduate Student Organization of Virginia Tech welcomes papers and presentations related to this year's conference theme: Language/Knowledge/Power.
This conference seeks to be the first of its kind that is dedicated to questions of anarchism in conjunction with questions about the body conceived of as real, social, perceived, constructed, or institutionalized. The conference committee will consider papers that use anarchism to inform studies related to the body or studies related to the body informing anarchism. We encourage innovative papers that engage with multiple aspects of anarchism intersecting with multiple disciplines and fields. While we encourage innovation, radical thought, diversity, and interdisciplinarity, we ask that individuals explain how their argument or presentation is applicable or significant to the fields with which they engage to ensure a coherent program.

Afghan (-istani) – Nation and Narration in Post-Colonial Postmodernities
"What I want to emphasize in that large and luminal image of the nation with which I began is a particular ambivalence that haunts the idea of the nation, the language of those who write of it and the lives of those who live it. It is an ambivalence that emerges from a growing awareness that, despite the certainty with which historians speak of the 'origins' of nation as a sign of the 'modernity' of society, the cultural temporality of the nation inscribes a much more transitional social reality."
(Homi K. Bhabha, Nation and Narration – Introduction)
