Comparative Caribbeans: an Interdisciplinary Conference*

This is why we stay with poetry. And despite our consenting to all the indisputable technologies; despite seeing the political leap that must be managed..., the full load of knowledge to be tamed..., at the bow there is still something we now share: this murmur, cloud or rain or peaceful smoke. …We cry our cry of poetry. Our boats are open, and we sail them for everyone.
– Édouard Glissant

[UPDATE] Espionage: Love and War. Aphra Behn Society. ASECS March 23-25, 2012

Monday, August 22, 2011 - 5:47pm
ASECS 2012/ Aphra Behn Society

Spies, allegations of spying, voyeurism, double agents, and the buying, trading, and coveting of intelligence abounds in the work of the former royal spy, Aphra Behn. Both morally dubious and exceptionally effective, spies are deployed, in disguise or in the person of a bosom friend, as a means to win battles of love and war. The Aphra Behn Society invites paper proposals on espionage, in all its permutations, in women's literature and art, 1660-1830. How do the women of this period investigate and participate in various forms of espionage? How do their texts explore the uses of espionage, and anxieties over the potential infiltration of the spy into private spaces, and the communication of intelligence to external or hostile parties?
