[UPDATE] Nov.13, 2010 The 18th Annual English and American Literature Association Conference: Everyday Life and Literature

Literature is related to everyday life in a subtle way. Everyday life often manifests itself as the textual Other outside the major narrative thrust, and, therefore, receives scant critical attention in literary studies. In fact everyday life can be seen as an arena of two-way negotiation: it is where power reproduces itself in daily practice, but it is also where both personal and collective creativity intervenes in the reproduction of power. Moreover, everyday life often emerges, becomes visible, or acquires meaning through its engagement with other social categories—gender, race, class, ethnicity, nature, and so on, whose different relations with dominant regimes of power call for different strategies of everyday life practices.

Go Green: Die Germanistik und grünes Gedankengut, The 1st Montreal German Studies Graduate Student Conference 23-25 April 2010

updated: 
Sunday, November 15, 2009 - 9:14pm
McGill University & Université de Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The 4th graduate conference at McGill and the 1st in collaboration with Université de Montréal, this year's theme sees its justification in the steady rise of awareness toward environmental issues, a concern not solely limited to the political or scientific worlds, but also prevalent within the humanities. This awareness is corroborated, but at times also corrupted by the abundance of news coverage in the mainstream media that have increasingly presented climate change with an apocalyptic outlook.

UPDATE: ACLA: Allegories of Language (New Orleans 1-4 April 2010; abstract by 11/23)

updated: 
Friday, November 13, 2009 - 4:26am
American Comparative Literature Association

Allegory has long been situated in a metaphorical-metaphysical scheme that presumes a hierarchical relationship between word and meaning. One way to rethink this relationship is to consider allegory as intrinsic to language itself (rather than as some meaning located outside of language) and how this view might challenge a hierarchical structure of reference. By bracketing this hierarchical relationship, we can consider the allegory of language itself. Allegory enables one to say two things at once, what one says in words and what one says other than in words. Allegory thus speaks a language that is also other to itself.
