"Let Spirit Speak!
Cultural Journeys through the African Diaspora"
April 22-24, 2010
The City College of New York
New York, NY

In many traditional African cultures, there is unity in the material and the spiritual, in the seen and unseen. There is no difference between the sacred and the secular within this system of thought: everything is imbued with the spirit of God. Binaries that dominate Western thought (man/woman; mind/body; light/dark; good/evil) do not function in the same way within these cultures, as the emphasis is not on extremes but on balancing these radical differences, on reconciling them.

What is English studies in the early decade of the 21st century, when the national boundaries are being crossed and redrawn thanks to the international flight, the Internet and people flows, when the rise of China starts to challenge the dominance of the English, when it has dawned upon us much of academic production is enmeshed with the credit crunch? New intellectual paradigms seem to emerge as literary studies vie with cultural studies, and other subjects for finance, space, work force and, more importantly, students.

This conference aims to highlight emerging research focuses related to the studies of the English language, culture, literature, art, manners and tastes, etc. with special emphasis to their "oriental" context(s).

Keynote speaker: Dr Peter Beal FBA (Institute of English Studies, University of London)

The medium is the message. Using this conceptual framework, our conference will explore how historical changes in media from the oral to the digital lead to the emergence of hybrid literary forms and the constant reinvention of literariness itself. With the revolution of (e)merging technologies as our schema, we seek pluralistic and interdisciplinary research on the dynamic network linking modes of communication, mass media and textuality.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
