"Expanding Boundaries and Reconceptualizing Text"

updated: 
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 8:12am
University of South Florida English Graduate Student Association

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.

[UPDATE] NEMLA 2015 CFP Steampunk Femininity: Recasting the Angel in the House

updated: 
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 7:33pm
Chamutal Noimann Borough of Manhattan Community College-CUNY

DEADLINE APPROACHING-September 30, 2014

We seek proposals for an approved panel for the 2015 NEMLA conference in Toronto.

Through consistent creation of powerful female heroines the likes of which we have never seen in Victorian literature, Steampunk has emerged as a strong feminist voice that addresses contemporary and current discourses on femininity simultaneously and rethinks our ideas of Victorian gender roles. This panel seeks to examine how Steampunk Young Adult and graphic novels subvert Victorian patriarchy and Empire by creating an alternate past that reimagines them both. Please submit 300-word abstract and bio.

We invite paper proposals for a panel the H.D. International Society is organizing at the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 26-28, 2015, hosted each year by the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. The focus of the panel, "New Approaches to H.D." is open-ended, and we will consider work focusing on any aspect of H.D. and/or her circle, although the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference (which expressly embraces literature's relationship to other arts and disciplines) means that an interdisciplinary angle might be especially appropriate.

July 30-August 2, 2015, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Conference Theme:
Je Me Souviens / I Remember

Quebec's simple but provocative motto, which is not without controversy over interpretation, caught our imagination — both metaphorically and geographically. It invokes thoughts of remembering — remembering theatre at its best, when its immediacy and humanness is embraced, remembering our past and how it points to the future, and remembering our power to instigate change.

These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.
