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.

And Wisconsin itself and its Midwestern neighbors have long been home to experiments inintentional community.
