This approved panel for the American Comparative Literature Association's annual meeting (Vancouver, Canada, 31 March - 3 April 2010) seeks papers that address aspects of the long debate over literary and intellectual engagement. Which types of texts are best suited to such a mission, and how does a text's activist agenda affect its form? How might realist or naturalist texts, whose aim is to "unveil [dévoiler]" (in Jean-Paul Sartre's words) for their readers the practical injustices around them, really make these readers feel responsible for ending those injustices? How do avant-garde texts accomplish what Theodor Adorno terms an altering of our "fundamental attitudes [Haltung]" or what Caroline Levine calls a needed provocation of democracy?

EXTENSION FOR PROPOSALS: Intersections, Tensions and New Dimensions: Encounters in the Contact Zone in English Studies 10/8-9

This graduate conference will explore the relevance of contact and contact zones for English Studies. As we move deeper into the twenty-first century, English Studies continues to see increasing discursive overlap. Understandings of identity and subjectivity have relied increasingly on syncretism and hybridity at the expense of rigid national, cultural, and periodic categories. As boundaries and concepts become more permeable, Mary Louise Pratt's definition of "Contact Zones" gains increasing relevance and currency.

The purpose of this session is to generate a forum for discussion and theoretical intervention among and within the musical and prosaic work of art. From Adorno to Nancy, the philosophical approach to music engendered a significant comparative debate with language, but can we still find a profitable assessment inside the sign-referent relation? Language follows a descriptive pattern in order to be expressive but, on the other hand, music creates a sort of impasse by articulating an emotional contour. In this sense, music and literature accompanied the euphoric condition that social and political changes developed in Latin America, especially during the first half of the 20th century.

Manifest Identity

At our second annual Association of English Graduate Students Symposium, we wish to explore the many ways that identity manifests itself as an object for study. The concept of identity permeates every text, from its narrator's organizing gaze to the the genre in which it is catalogued. Indeed, we invite you to question the term "text" itself, as "text" has come to be identified as anything from a novel to a Facebook page to a film.
