This panel will examine the construction and deconstruction of truth and lie as they shape multiple realities in the texts Blackbird, Lolita, and Doubt. Whose perceptions of reality are privileged when constructions of reality clash? When/how do perceptions of sexual intimacy transform into accusations of abuse? In what ways does the trajectory of age impact formations of reality from memory? Please send 250--500 word abstracts to cathy.fagan@ncc.edu. PDF or Word files please.

Chapter proposals are invited for an edited book on the themes and films of Claire Denis.

"Somebody or Something Else": EGSS 7th graduate conference on Performance and Performativity (March 12-13 2010)

updated: 
Sunday, September 13, 2009 - 4:40pm
full name / name of organization: 
English Graduate Student Society (EGSS) of l'universite de Montreal

The seventh annual Université de Montréal English graduate conference seeks to examine the constructed nature of human life and thus invites 250-300 words abstract for papers dealing with the notions of performance and performativity in literature and the arts. Although performance was traditionally associated with theatre and the interpretation of a written text by actors, the idea of performance also applies to everyday life, to the behaviour individuals are obligated to adopt in order to function in society. Every face-to-face encounter becomes a performance especially if we think of performativity as the internalization of a script.
