CFP for MLA Convention in Los Angeles, 1/6-9/2011 -

In recent years, critics have increasingly considered the role that sexuality plays in matters of migration. To expand on these studies, this panel seeks papers that analyze the intersections of sexuality and border crossing in literature. Essays should ideally examine literature that connects human movement with the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer people. Papers will ideally explore these issues by employing some critical discourse or theory. Please submit 1 page abstracts as Word documents to edachamb@indiana.edu by Saturday March 20th.

International Conference "Unity in Diversity" on the Niche Areas in Commonwealth Linguistics, Literature and Culture

"The minor but not dismissed, the dismissed but not excluded,the excluded but not forgotten"
Department of English, Szczecin University, Poland, 21 -24 October 2010.

Recent literary, linguistic and cultural studies have been largely dominated by burgeoning new theories paving the way for the most interesting and up-to-date concepts, notions and ideas. Yet there are many scholars whose main research area is centered at the peripheries of these mainstream discoveries thus leading to the emergence of niche fields of study within current literary and linguistic research projects.

Crisis Carnival 2010: Spectacle! The Seduction of Illusion

What do the Olympic opening ceremony, drag queens, and Shakespeare have in common?

Linguistic theorists such as Judith Butler, Jean Baudrillard, and Guy Debord have all conjectured that we engage daily in performances that obscure the line between illusion and reality. These performances both re-affirm and challenge society's values, boundaries, and taboos. By analyzing these spectacles, we can question the relationship between performance and the "real," with the hopes of discovering the motivations behind these seductive visions.
