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.

Peaks Interdisciplinary Conference 2012
Featured Theme:
"This is the End": Transformations & New Beginnings

Rumors of the end of the world have existed for as long as humans have been able to articulate fear. The year 2012 has provided us with yet another instance of this phenomenon. This year's conference will highlight our ideas about endings, beginnings, and rebirths in all of their various forms. We hope to see visions of Armageddon, conceptualizations of endings or changes in art, media, and culture, and new explorations of beginnings and endings in language studies, education, and the sciences.

February 24th and 25th
Kickoff on February 23rd

New Voices in Irish Criticism: "Legitimate Ireland"
19th – 21st April 2012
Institute of Irish Studies
Queen's University, Belfast

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.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The Nonhuman Turn in 21st Century Studies
Center for 21st Century Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
May 4-5, 2012

This conference takes up the "nonhuman turn" that has been emerging in the arts, humanities, and social sciences over the past few decades. Intensifying in the 21st century, this nonhuman turn can be traced to a variety of different intellectual and theoretical developments from the last decades of the 20th century:

actor-network theory, particularly Bruno Latour's career-long project to articulate technical mediation, nonhuman agency, and the politics of things;
