The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

Call for Papers: 4th Annual GEO Conference "Borderlines" University of Maryland, College Park March 11-12, 2011
The Graduate English Organization of the University of Maryland's Department of English invites graduate students to submit abstracts for our fourth annual interdisciplinary graduate conference "Borderlines."
Bridging the Gaps, Minding the Context is a conference hosted by and designed for PhD and Postgraduate students. It seeks to address a number of issues related to literary studies today, in an attempt to bring together early-career researchers from different disciplines. As the title suggests, this conference proposes to discuss the intersection between literature and culture, and how such connection can successfully reflect deeper changes at other levels: how can borders be crossed in literature? And, how do we cross them when encountering a written text? The fragility and ever-changing nature of meaning and textual veracity will also serve as the starting point from which to explore shifting perceptions of power and authority in the text.
Please note the call for papers for the interdisciplinary 'Spectres of Class' conference at the University of Chester, UK, on 15-16 July 2011 organised in association with CADAAD (Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines).

This proposed panel welcomes papers on literature of and about the Civil War through the end of reconstruction. Papers on individual texts or larger trends are welcome, as are traditional and non-traditional definitions of "literature."
