(An)Aesthetic of Absence
University of Toronto, March 8-10, 2012
Keynote Addresses by J. Hillis Miller (University of California, Irvine)
and Rebecca Comay (University of Toronto)

The 23rd annual conference of the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto will be held from March 8-10, 2012, and will focus on the concept of "Absence": the aesthetics, ethics, and politics of that which is not present. Following from last year's conference, "Iconoclasm," we now consider not that which has been broken, but that which is simply—and yet profoundly—absent.

Undressing the Bawdy - Submission Deadline: November 18, 2011

Pivot: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies & Thought

Derived from "bawd," a word of uncertain etymology associated with practices of female prostitution, "bawdy" describes something that is boisterously or humorously indecent. Considering that one of the earliest known works of literature, The Epic of Gilgamesh, with its many descriptions of the randy exploits of a Sumarian prince, can be considered bawdy, one might suggest that bawdiness is an intrinsic quality of literary discourse. From Rabelais's laughing pregnant hags, to Rochester's copious odes to genitalia, and Joyce's "obscenities" in Ulysses, the bawdy has titillated centuries of readers.
