Nothing New Under the Sun?
Novelty, Game-Changing, and Genre-Breaking
2011 University of Florida English Graduate Organization Conference
October 28-29, 2011, at the University of Florida
Keynote Speaker: Richard Flynn (Georgia Southern University)
The English Graduate Organization of the University of Florida invites papers across disciplines concerning the idea of novelty in literature, film, rhetoric or the production of art. By interrogating the causes and effects of novelty in the life of an artist, scholar or artistic movement, we hope to destabilize the boundaries around the "old" and "new" and trace the lingering impact of these game-changers across both time and disciplines.
