TRANSITIONS

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Definition: We talk about transitions between time periods, technologies, genres, social movements, sciences, mathematics, design and how big and small ideas permeate movements in society. What this theme should then encourage is the ability to demonstrate analysis and hold discourse on topics related to transitions applicable to any and all disciplines.

[UPDATE] The Literature of Loss

The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?

As LGBTQ Studies finds disciplinary space on a growing number of university and college campuses, questions about the cultural and intellectual effects of academic institutionalization have become progressively more urgent:

• Where is the broad field of LGBTQ Studies heading?
• Where has it been? How might we negotiate the relationship between intellectual inquiry and social movements?
• In what ways might the epistemological concerns of LGBTQ Studies affect the pedagogical imperatives of the classroom (and vice-versa)?

"The Coming of Age of LGBTQ Studies" is a two-day conference devoted to exploring these and related questions.

A New Nation of Regions

This session seeks to create a dialogue among scholars focusing on regional, sub-regional, and urban writing in Canada. Canadian literature and critical approaches to it have long focused on large regions such as the Prairies and the coasts rather than the nation as a whole; more recently, however, there has been a shift toward provinces and smaller regions as well as specific urban areas. I welcome proposals on any of these formations, and I hope to discuss the relationships between newer and older regionalisms. For instance, does fragmentation into smaller areas challenge previous notions of region? Is a conception of Maritime writing such as David Creelman's enriched or undermined by analyses of Cape Breton literature?

UPDATE The Human-Animal Boundary: Exploring the Line in Philosophy and Fiction 10-11 April 2015

The boundary between humans and non-human animals has been an integral part of philosophic discourse since antiquity, with mounting evidence of language, tool use and general cognitive abilities now leading scientists to contest its impermeability. These lines have been drawn and re-drawn in innumerable ways in imaginative literature, and the various ways in which humans perceive non-human animals have become the subject of study in various disciplines. Attempts to draw a boundary between human and nonhuman animals have involved the artistic imagination as well as philosophical reflection.

Les chemins de la tradition: myths, mythemes, and the rewriting of origins (March 13-14, 2015 - Louisiana State University)

The stories and plays of the ancients have long been an inspiration, a point de départ, for Western literature. Across the centuries, French authors use and reuse these myths, transforming them while giving them new life.

During the twelfth century, Benoit de Sainte Maure retold the Trojan War. Racine rewrote the fatal love triangle in Phèdre in the seventeenth century; Balzac recycled the King Midas myth in Eugénie Grandet two centuries later. This reappropriation of myth in literature was especially popular in the twentieth century, whether with Camus's Le mythe de Sisyphe, Anouilh's Antigone, or Cocteau's Orphée.
