The voice of an artist reaches and touches the world as well as the lives of his/ her readers. The words of writers can stir social unrest but they can also pacify the crowds. Literary works are instrumental in preserving national identities, and Poland's troubled history during the Partitions can serve as the epitome of the authority of literature. Writers, however, are equally revered as they are persecuted for the statements they dare to utter.

Papers are invited for the first academic conference dedicated to engaged reading organized by Troy University. This interdisciplinary summer conference, "Reading Matters," will take place from June 11 to June 13, 2014, at Troy University, Troy, Alabama.
This conference is an attempt to rethink what it means to read and how we read in our current culture.

We welcome any sustained attempt to explore and rethink the various aspects involved in engaged reading.
