At our inaugural Kansas State University Regional Graduate Student Conference in Literature, we will explore the ways in which revolutions of all kind have affected (and continue to affect) our discipline. Revolution! is inspired by Jasbir Puar's groundbreaking work, Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which critiques contemporary configurations of sexuality, race, gender, nation, class, and ethnicity. Using Puar's work as a touchstone for revolutionary readings, our conference will examine representations of revolution in its various forms—cultural, political, textual, and theoretical—in British and American literature composed during any period.

Composing Live(s): Writing the Self and the Other within the Disciplines

March 25, 2011, 9:00-4:00
Oxford, Ohio

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." --- Lord Byron

Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.

[UPDATE] Eugene O'Neill's One-Act Plays--Edited Collection (1/1/11 & 7/1/11)

Monday, November 29, 2010 - 8:19am

Michael Y. Bennett/University of Wisconsin-Whitewater & Benjamin D. Carson/Bridgewater State University
contact email: 

Although Eugene O'Neill's work has generated much scholarship, his one-act plays have not received the critical attention they deserve. Given that O'Neill began his career writing one-act plays, including his justly famous "Sea Plays," associated with the Provincetown Players, it is surprising that his one-acts have been largely neglected. This current collection aims to fill the gap by examining O'Neill's one-act plays, during what can be considered O'Neill's formative writing years, and the formative period of American drama.
