Miami Vice:

The Role of Immorality and Depravity in Constructions of the Self and Community

March 16, 2012, 9:00-4:00 Oxford, Ohio

What's vice today may be virtue, tomorrow. -- Henry Fielding

In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.--Marquis de Sade

Greed, avarice, and lust; bribery, prostitution, and blackmail; sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll—vice is a sign and cause of social ills as well as an outlet of rebellion against structure and stagnation. How we (dis)associate ourselves with vice helps constitute our individual and group identities and affiliations.

Journal of Neo-Victorian Studies

As part of the bicentenary celebrations of Dickens's birth, the editors of a special issue of Neo-Victorian Studies on 'The Other Dickens: Neo-Victorian Appropriation and Adaptation' invite contributors to consider the 'other' Dickens – those aspects of Dickens's life and work that have been the subject of recent revision, reappraisal, and transformation in contemporary culture. The special issue will aim to critically assess our persisting fascination with this canonical Victorian figure and, more generally, the 'Dickensian' cultural legacy of the Victorian age in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

States of Emergency: New Iconographies and the Narratives of Catastrophe--ACLA Seminar, 2012; CFP Deadline November 15, 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - 8:57am
Stephenie Young (Salem State University), Lisa Mulman (Salem State University)

Since WWII visual and written work documenting traumatic historical events in diverse geographic locations has emerged as one of the most prolific spaces of artistic production, yet still remains a relatively under-examined area of scholarly analysis. This is particularly true of comparative and interdisciplinary work. This seminar will focus on imaginative and testimonial narratives from sites of cultural or historical rupture/disruption/insurgence and the ways in which such narratives re- envision states of emergency as moments of artistic invention and/or transformation.

Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Conference: Re-envision, Re-formation, Re-creation

updated: 
Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - 12:25am
Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.

This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.
