"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

[UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 1/15/2015] Call for Papers: "Expanding Boundaries and Reconceptualizing Text"

Sunday, January 4, 2015 - 3:08pm
University of South Florida English Graduate Student Association

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

Italo Calvino once asked, "who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while the question maintains its relevance, isn't it about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts produced and the environments in which they are produced?

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.
