REWRITING
Keynote speaker: Prof. Lawrence Venuti (Temple University)

The 2015 FIGS Conference theme, Rewriting, seeks to explore the multiple manifestations of a work throughout its lifetime. The rewriting process may entail the draft work of the original author pre-publication, the revisions of a work (both subtle and dramatic, author-authorized and unauthorized) in successive re-editions, translations and the inter-textual or adaptational re-appropriations by other authors and artists.

Literary Exteriors - February 21, 2015

updated: 
Friday, November 14, 2014 - 3:30pm
Boston College English Graduate Conference

How do we understand exteriors in literature? With critical study often focused on interiority, subjectivity, and soul, the outside is often overlooked or put aside. But what happens when the focus is redirected to exteriors, physicality, materiality—the tangible, ready to be touched surfaces of objects meant to be read? What happens when we pay attention to the shell rather than the spirit? The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider these literary exteriors. The question of exteriority ranges from the covers of the book a reader holds, to the bodies and objects described within, to the varied complexities of visual and material culture and their range of texts.

Deadline Extended to December 8th!
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.
