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.

From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power. It raises questions surrounding the legitimacy of performative and systemic aspects of Irishness, which has been and continues to be in flux both north and south of the border.
