The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015
Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as figures 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.

2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps, one of the spy genre's most influential novels. With its roots in the 19th century, the genre evolved and diversified throughout the 20th century, providing, as Michael Denning writes, a 'cover story' that has rendered 'the political and cultural transformations of the twentieth century into the intrigues of a shadow world of secret agents'. Capturing the ever-evolving zeitgeist of cultural and political anxieties, the genre has encompassed (and exploited) 'hot' wars and 'cold', and most recently a global War on Terror.
