Dirty Talk: The Forms and Language of Pleasure (MadLit) - Abstracts Due 1/3/2015

Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure
The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit)
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015w

Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

Frames: Jewish Culture and the Comic Book

"Spiegelman prompts one to see the panel as a picture and a window, as an oxymoronic 'picture window' that must at once be looked at and looked through: looked at because its signifying surface does not simply efface itself, does not merely yield before the authority of a signified reality or become a transparent means to an end outside itself; looked through because such 'picture windows' do open onto other windows, onto the abyssal depths of panes within panes."

III Inaugural Conference: Re-visioning Space(s), Time and Bodies

9-11 April, 2015: Main Conference
8 April, 2015: 1-day Writing and Publishing Workshop

Throughout history our understandings of categories such as space, time, and bodies have changed. Living in a more than human world, we have constructed these categories into systems of shared, and often unquestioned, meaning. This method of organising knowledge acquisition has a tendency to construct boundaries or borders which conceals the complex nature and varied connections between spatiality, instances of time and understandings of bodies.

SOUND & MARX

updated: 
Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - 9:47am
POLYGRAPH/Duke University

Since the 1970s, the critical and cultural interest in sound has largely eschewed the tendency to categorize the beautiful and proper into the binary categories of music and noise; instead, we find sound culture as more critically attentive to the world around us as a kind of buzzing confusion of sound. The ostensible goal of this critical gesture is to democratize our listening habits by loosening the term "music" from definitions of taste and value such that anything could be considered music to our ears. But, in material practice, has promoting a general theoretical rubric of sound run the risk of flattening the lived inequalities that produce differences in the production, distribution and reception of sound as music?

Conference Theme--It's Only Natural(ism): Questioning and Responding to the Master Narrative of Late Modernity

April 9-11, 2015
Charleston Southern University
Charleston, South Carolina

Keynote Speaker: Roger Lundin, Wheaton College

Undergraduates thrilling to the bleak despair of Stephen Crane or Thomas Hardy are often excited to discover the existence of naturalism as a philosophy of life and a literary movement of great importance. They are quick to draw parallels to contemporary issues and controversies, for naturalism's reach is clearly not confined to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
