[UPDATE] Bridges and Borders Graduate/Undergraduate Conference

updated: 
Friday, December 4, 2009 - 12:39pm
full name / name of organization: 
English Graduate Advancement and Development Society at The University of Texas at Brownsville

The English Graduate Advancement and Development Society (EGADS!) at the University of Texas at Brownsville will host its annual graduate/undergraduate English studies conference on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010. This year's topic is "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."
Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.

Abstract

'The idea of influence in American literature', 31 March 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - 11:37am

English Faculty, University of Oxford, UK
contact email: 

This one-day conference aims to ask whether American literature might fruitfully be viewed as a product of its influences, and if so, whether it can – or should – be considered separately from these influences. This question leads to two further areas of consideration: firstly, how the fluidity of American culture, informed by America's history of immigration and its complex demographic make-up, has helped construct American literature up to the present day; and secondly, how far American literature contains, excludes or even dams the constant in-flowing of cultural sources.
