Trials, Transgressions, and Taboos

"Whenever a taboo is broken, something good happens, something vitalizing. Taboos after all are only hangovers, the product of diseased minds, you might say, of fearsome people who hadn't the courage to live and who under the guise of morality and religion have imposed these things upon us." – Henry Miller

The eighth annual AEGIS (Association of English Graduate Instructors and Students) graduate conference invites paper proposals on interdisciplinary topics treating trials, transgressions, and taboos in literature, cinema, the writing process, and popular culture and art.

Aristotle, in his Nicomachean Ethics, states that reciprocal exchange is the glue which holds society together, saying "The very existence of the state depends on proportionate reciprocity…failing which no exchange takes place, and it is exchange that binds them together…it is a duty not only to repay a service done one, but another time to take the initiative in doing a service oneself" (NE V.v.7).

[UPDATE] Adaptation and the Novel 9 November 2013, Keele University

updated: 
Monday, October 21, 2013 - 6:11am
Keele University

The full programme for Adaptation and the Novel can now be found on the website: http://adaptationskeele.wordpress.com/programme/

With plenary lectures by Rachel Carroll (Teeside University) and Sarah Wootton (Durham University), this conference seeks to question the processes behind adapting the novel. Are novels tainted or legitimated in the process of adaptation? What aesthetic challenges and opportunities does the transition of a story from one genre to another present? And in what cultural, commercial, and artistic contexts have processes of adaptation and appropriation taken place?
