Keynote Speaker: Cathy Davidson

“Current Pedagogies for the Humanities”
The 18th Annual EGSA Mardi Gras Conference invites papers for the proposed
“Current Pedagogies for the Humanities.” We are seeking 15 minute papers
that consider teaching the humanities in our contemporary age. Papers
could explore making use of technology and digital aids in the classroom,
methods of making artistic studies relevant to students outside the
humanities, and intersections between the two. We are interested in both
specific teaching practices and more general teaching theories.

War & the (Re)Invention of Communications & Communities (11/01/07;
2/29/08-3/1/08) Arizona State U.

Paper Submission Deadline Extended to Nov. 1, 2007

How does the (re)invention of communications and communities intersect with
issues of war? How can war, totalitarianism, or torture be reconsidered
regarding transmission, translation, and transgression? Examples could
include transmission of information to communities about war via media and
visual images; translation of trauma to the body into writing or speaking;
how literature, art, creative writing, rhetoric, etc. might translate war;
and transgressions against the nation-state, religion, gender, violence, etc.
