Shifting Spatialities: The Dynamic Boundaries of Place and Space

Rice Graduate Symposium
October 2-3, 2009
Rice University, Houston, TX

Call For Papers
Submission Deadline: July 1, 2009

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

Call for Papers: "Rising Tides: Major and Minor Trends in English Studies"
University of North Carolina Wilmington
Graduate English Association Conference
April 17 & 18, 2008 (The conference is on April 18, but we plan to host a social event the night before.)

"Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different waters flow."

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos' wisdom remains salient. None would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend – a new branch from the old.

Metaphor in Public Discourse

full name / name of organization: 
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This session seeks to promote new knowledge about the nature and function of metaphor in public discourse. Interpretations of contemporary events tend to use metaphorical expressions to describe cultural and social changes in society, illuminating but also hiding concepts embedded in discourse. Academicians from various fields of studies will highlight ways in which conceptualizations govern our understanding of key issues and actions in current times. Participants are encouraged to explore metaphor as expressed through written, oral, visual, and gestural languages in public discourse.

I will be chairing a panel on Ancient-Modern Relations at November's Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association's conference in San Francisco.

Of particular interest are issues related to: Romanticism, the C19, and Modernism; "Orientalism" and/in the Ancient World; Postcolonial approaches to and definitions of the "Ancient"; and Critical Theory's debt to Ancient Philosophy.

But again, this is a broadly defined panel, and all proposals dealing with Ancient and Modern Relations are welcome.

The conference dates are November 6-7, 2009, in San Francisco.
