Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization
contact email: 

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.

This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.

Special Topics Session: "Subverting and Perverting: Bad Grrls in Fiction"

This special topics session is a follow up to a successful roundtable at the annual 2010 MELUS conference in Scranton, PA; the 2010 roundtable was inspired by poet-writer Marilyn Chin's _Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen_. In this novel, or book of tales, Chin's Chinese-American twin female protagonists subvert the dominant expectations of gender and sexuality. I am interested in paper proposals that examine the works of contemporary women writers who raise questions about gender and sexuality within and across various ethnicities.

Renaissance Borders, Princeton University, April 13-14, 2012

Friday, December 30, 2011 - 12:52pm
full name / name of organization: 
Princeton University Renaissance Studies

From the beginning, conceptualizations of the Renaissance have been concerned with borders: between the classical past and the modern present; between pagan and Christian; between the civilized and the barbarous. Even as the idea of the Renaissance has endured various critiques over the past half century, this attention to borders has only intensified. In current debates about secularization and periodization in Renaissance studies, the boundaries between past and present and between the sacred and the profane have taken on a newly charged intensity.
