This conference aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus on a fundamental aspect of human life: work.

Northeastern University English Graduate Student Association

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.

In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).

"Worlds Between: Exploring the Borders, Boundaries, and Gaps that Divide and Bind"

Graduate Conference

"Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge." – Lord Byron

This conference is interested in exploring the concept of the spaces between – genres, cultures, times, people, movements, nations – the possibilities are endless. How do these spaces confine? How do they enable? What moves between? What exists within?
