(Re)presentation: Problematizing Authenticity-- St. John's University Graduate English Conference March 28, 2015

With an increasing interest for a globalized and diverse society, the quest for an authentic self is more readily apparent and therefore further conflates the problem of representation. Globalization expands beyond social media and encroaches on the realms of the public and private spheres. However, the process of authenticity only further stabilizes potentially harmful ideologies that promote illusions of truth. In some instances, language (literature), film, and art, because of their figurative element, expose the artificiality of representation and engage the issue of authenticity. How are certain claims to truth (authenticity/referentiality) formulated, regulated, and destabilized through representation in literature, film, and art?

Spying on Spies: Popular Representations of Spies and Espionage, 3-5 Sep 2015, The Shard, London, UK [ABSTRACTS DUE 15 FEB 2015]

Spying on Spies

Keynote speakers: Professor Phyllis Lassner (Northwestern University) and Dr Rosie White (Northumbria University)

2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps, one of the spy genre's most influential novels. With its roots in the 19th century, the genre evolved and diversified throughout the 20th century, providing, as Michael Denning writes, a 'cover story' that has rendered 'the political and cultural transformations of the twentieth century into the intrigues of a shadow world of secret agents'. Capturing the ever-evolving zeitgeist of cultural and political anxieties, the genre has encompassed (and exploited) 'hot' wars and 'cold', and most recently a global War on Terror.

St. Bonaventure University Department of English

Both popular and scholarly press has been confronting the changing role of higher education, from Frank Donoghue's Last Professor to Henry Giroux and Kostas Myrsiades's collection Beyond the Corporate University. Technology, economic shifts, and cultural-existential needs change roles for faculty, students, and administration. Many incoming scholars face a "brave new world" of increased adjunct positions, declining tenure, MOOCs, reduced pure research, and students who may not fit traditional models. Finding a new home in this shifting world may prove difficult or exciting, depending on the outlook.
