Columbia University French Graduate Student Association

The French Graduate Student Association of Columbia University is pleased to announce its 20th Graduate Student conference, to be held March 4th, 2011.

The conference will take as its theme text and image in French and world literatures and art. We will explore how text and image complement and interact and compete with one another in composite works, and how an understanding of each can inform readings of hybrid works, such as textual/lettrist art, visual poetry, film, and even theatre. Graduate students of all departments are welcome to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, and we especially welcome projects with a comparative focus and/or approach. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

The Right to Vote and the Writing of Voice (Seminar at the AIS) deadline 12.10.2010

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 - 2:19am
ASSOCIATION FOR ISRAEL STUDIES (AIS) [June 13-15 2011]

The Right to Vote and the Writing of Voice

The word kol in Hebrew means "voice" as well as "vote", thus implying kol as having the potential for political power. In our seminar we wish to examine the interplay of power and the use of voice/vote: voices creating or deconstructing identities, voices heard or unheard in the literary piece, granted or disowned voices. Who has the right to speak in Hebrew literature? What are the literary means enabling the freedom of speech? How does this relationship of power and voice come into play in the literary piece? What are the places of the muffled, choked voice? What are the places of the loud, screaming voice? How does canonization tune/orchestrate the different voices within literature?

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?
