DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013

For our inaugural issue, we are seeking submissions of graduate student work from around the world on the topic of mimesis versus invention. The Rat's Mouth Review, as a journal, seeks to invent itself, few would argue that it is not doing so in a mimetic fashion.

MadLit 2013: Between Surface and Depth EXTENDED DEADLINE

Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 3:55pm
University of Wisconsin-Madison

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's ninth annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit) will be held February 28–March 1, 2013. This year's conference, "Between Surface and Depth," investigates how humanistic disciplines articulate notions of superficiality and depth in their scholarly practices. Building from the debates surrounding Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus's "Surface Reading: An Introduction" (Representations 108.1 (Fall 2009): 1–21), this conference will explore the implications of using spatial models to conceptualize the location of meaning in language, literature, and discourse.
