Universidade de Vigo (Spain)

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.

Quest and Conquest:
Spiritual Symbols and Myths in the Indo-Mediterranean and European Worlds

[Please note that the deadline for submission of proposals has been extended.]

Myths and symbols are at the core of the sacred—a vision of the world which all cultures share through their diverse languages. Quest and conquest have been archetypal concepts for all medieval cultures. Though more often than not quest and conquest have opposed each other as key factors in the historical self-fashioning of individuals and communities, they have also merged in that place of heart which all forms of literary and artistic expression seek to reveal.

Intersections, Tensions, and New Dimensions:
Encounters in the Contact Zone in English Studies

October 8-9, 2010
University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH

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.
