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

updated: 
Monday, October 20, 2014 - 12:07pm
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.

Access: Redefining Disability and Mobility Studies

Monday, October 20, 2014 - 11:00am
Duquesne University/ English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access, especially in pre- and early modern literary cultures. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite literary, historical, and cultural considerations of access. Historically, who has had access? How do texts navigate the political, economic, social, etc. constraints on access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious literary spaces?
