[Reminder] Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline (MadLit) – Proposals by 12/18/15; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

Monday, November 30, 2015 - 10:20am
UW-Madison MadLit Graduate Student Conference

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.

Texts, Contexts, and Subtexts: Charlotte Perkins Gilman in Her Time

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's articles, letters, papers, and library underscore a central quality of her diverse and prolific career: her works were deeply engaged with the social and scientific milieus of her time. An avid reader, enthusiastic learner, and active member within her own intellectual communities, Gilman often reached out to those whose work she admired – as well as to those whose work she found lacking. Through her lectures, publications, and correspondence, Gilman impacted a broad cross-section of scholarly and literary discourses.
