The End? Indiana University Graduate Student Conference, March 25-27, 2010

updated: 
Monday, December 7, 2009 - 5:52pm
Indiana University Department of English

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "The End?" to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010.

Bookends, happy endings, at wits' end, means to an end, split ends, making ends meet… the list could go on. We imagine the end in endless ways when we think about our languages, our cultures, our disciplines, our arts, and ourselves. What sort of ends are we at, or fast approaching? What ends have we passed? When we structure our thinking around an ending, do we imply a certain teleology? Do we point to a moment of division or rupture? Do we ask about a new beginning?

Disagreement: Comparative Literature Graduate Student Conference at New York University March 5-6, 2010

updated: 
Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 2:54pm
New York University Department of Comparative Literature

Can we disagree? The question forces you to answer 'yes' or 'no,' to commit to one path or the other. Perhaps it even forces you to choose your allies, to prepare for combat.

If we can disagree, how do we do this? Why the desire to disagree in the first place? This questioning asks us to examine the epistemological and material conditions of disagreement; the possibility of dialogue and understanding; the relationship between eristic and dialectic; the role and function of polemos; and the relation between negation, negativity, difference and disagreement.
