Vision: University at Albany 13th Annual EGSO Conference, March 27-28, 2015

For our 13th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization invites graduate students of all disciplines to submit critical papers and creative works that address vision both literally and metaphorically. Beyond the literal act of seeing, vision connects to a desire to foresee the future and look back to the past, whether politically, economically, or aesthetically. These seemingly competing modes of vision are intrinsically related as optics both enable and limit our ability to conceptualize a future beyond what we can immediately see. Humanities scholars might consider vision in terms of visual culture, visual literacy, visual rhetorics, and/or the role of vision within classroom settings.

Deadline Extended to December 8th!
Trance: March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

CFP - 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions (Due: 31 Dec. 2014)

full name / name of organization: 
Hacettepe University, Department of English Language and Literature, 50th Anniversary Conference: British and Turkish Literary and Cultural Interactions
contact email: 

The aim of this conference is to revisit the literary, artistic and cultural texts, whether they are canonical or non-canonical, from both the (English/British) West and the (Ottoman/Turkish) East, from a historical period stretching from the Medieval Period to the end of the twentieth century, and representing the encounters and exchanges between the two. One major concern of the conference is to include into the debate the discursive constructions other than "Orientalism" (i.e. possible Occidentalism(s)?, essentializing self-representations) for the purpose of expanding the scope and scale of the academic conversation in this area.

11 Literature in English Symposium: Poetry and Beyond

Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

LIES 2015 asks the fundamental questions of contemporary culture: What is the stance of poetry today? Can poets still be venerated as leaders of nations? Is poetry "relegated" to universities? Muldoon's Oxford Lectures in Poetry (2006) are entitled The End of the Poem, yet like in John Donne's Holy Sonnets, the end of one poem is the beginning of the next one.

The guests of honour at LIES 2015 (15-16th May 2015) are Paul Muldoon as well as Nick Hayes, a political cartoonist and the author of the graphic novel, Rime of the Modern Mariner – and thus we are going through Poetry into the Beyond!

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World

The second issue of Angles, the new online journal published by the SAES, will aim at examining "angles and limes" in Anglo-American studies.

The purpose of this particular issue is to gather articles focusing both on the specific angles of each discipline and their limits, and on the instances when borders are crossed and limits are passed—must be passed—to further research. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals developing and clarifying their own practices as regards limits and angles.

11th Literature in English Symposium: Poetry and Beyond with Muldoon and Hayes

"I am with Raleigh, near the Atlantic" writes Paul Muldoon in "Promises, Promises" from the volume Why Brownlee Left ( ). Even though Plato wanted to banish poets from the (ideal?) Republic, poets and poetry have remained part of the social life. After all, the Romantics believed in the inborn superiority of literature as a mode of knowledge and judgment. Literature and not history or philosophy carried the meaning of life. Victorians placed a poet not above but within his/her community thereby asserting his or her social utility.
