sshelton@uta.edu

Conference 4/3/15 in Arlington, Texas; Submission Deadline 2/9/15

The UT Arlington English Graduate Student Association is holding its 3rd Annual UTA English Graduate Conference on April 3, 2015 with the theme “Navigations and Narrations: Exploring Space and Place.” (For the full conference CFP, see the end of this post or http://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/node/59249). We are also accepting submissions specifically for a Fat Studies panel that will explore the larger conference theme through the lens of Fat Studies.

Space and place are both ideas central to Fat Studies. What space is the fat body allowed in an able/thin-centric society? How does the fat body move within, blur, and/or break down such boundaries? What are the “crossroads of circumstance” where the fat body is placed in past and contemporary society? How are such issues entrenched, expressed, explored, and/or exploded through literature or writing? How does the fat body navigate the physical spaces and places on a college campus or within the classroom? Such questions are merely jumping off points; we welcome all topics that explore the intersection of Fat Studies with literature, composition, and/or pedagogy.
