The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

Sexual (Dis)continuities: A Graduate Student Conference

CUNY Graduate Center, Department of French

Foucault's influence on the field of sexuality studies is undeniable, yet many scholars have taken him to task for his famous assertion that the nineteenth-century gave birth to the homosexual as "un personnage" whereas the sodomite was simply "un sujet juridique". These distinctions between acts and persona, between alterity and continuum have been vigorously analyzed and debated by scholars in all areas of sexuality studies, including hetero-, homo- and queer sexualities. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick sharply criticized this divide as presupposing that the modern homosexual is a "coherent definitional field", and that earlier sexual categories simply disappear as new ones take over.

Call for Papers: The Henri Peyre French Institute Food Seminar: SALT
Generally viewed as the ultimate dietary malefactor in contemporary Western cultures, salt has adopted many meanings and held many functions in a long historical period, both in the West and in lands impacted by Western colonialism. France is no exception in that respect.
As the first section of the Henri Peyre French Institute's six-semester series on Food and Foodstuffs in the French and Francophone worlds (Food, Power, Exchange and Identity: Food and Foodstuffs in the French and Francophone Worlds), the Fall 2014 Seminar on Salt includes online visual exhibits and an online forum and culminates in a full-day colloquium on December 5, 2014.
