Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure
The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit)
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015w
Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

'What's aught but as 'tis valued?'
William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida, II.ii, 53
In times of austerity, it is more than ever essential that what and how we value, and the far-reaching effects of any such valuation, be closely examined. The need for such attention has become particularly urgent within universities, where recent reductions of funding have sparked a sharp increase of debate over 'the value of the Humanities'. With that in mind, the Oxford English Faculty Graduate Conference 2015 invites papers on all aspects of 'value', as a concept that has, and will always inspire great passion, and great controversy.
III Inaugural Conference: Re-visioning Space(s), Time and Bodies
9-11 April, 2015: Main Conference
8 April, 2015: 1-day Writing and Publishing Workshop
Throughout history our understandings of categories such as space, time, and bodies have changed. Living in a more than human world, we have constructed these categories into systems of shared, and often unquestioned, meaning. This method of organising knowledge acquisition has a tendency to construct boundaries or borders which conceals the complex nature and varied connections between spatiality, instances of time and understandings of bodies.
