Revolution! A Regional Graduate Student Literature Conference. April 2, 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 4:56pm
Christina Hauck, Department of English, Kansas State University

At our inaugural Kansas State University Regional Graduate Student Conference in Literature, we will explore the ways in which revolutions of all kind have affected (and continue to affect) our discipline. Revolution! is inspired by Jasbir Puar's groundbreaking work, Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which critiques contemporary configurations of sexuality, race, gender, nation, class, and ethnicity. Using Puar's work as a touchstone for revolutionary readings, our conference will examine representations of revolution in its various forms—cultural, political, textual, and theoretical—in British and American literature composed during any period.
