PCEA Conference - Narratives of Travel & Navigation: English by Water, Air, Land, and Imagination

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 1:01pm
Pennsylvania College English Association

Erie, Pennsylvania, the state's only port city, has historically served as a center for maritime and rail travel. Its waters were vital to winning wars and providing a point of arrival for immigrants. Erie's remote location and close proximity to the Canadian border also offered a conduit for those escaping slavery. Narratives of travel have long served to document the course of peoples' physical and imaginative movements. They have recorded minute details of lived experience as well as aspirations for the future and fears of the unknown, creating histories of time and place, directing individual lives, and shaping cultural realities.

PLAYFUL INTERRUPTIONS IN RECENT FILM (6/1/2011; MMLA, 11/3-6/2011)

In Jean-Luc Nancy's The Inoperative Community representations are not just works of art (oeuvre); they also, in fact, work. Representations present "community" and thereby give a disparate group of beings an identity, borders, and a body. If representations work, what happens when a work founders, when it falls apart, and opens onto something else? Would this opening then be the place or space of play, even serious play? What does this "absence of work" look like formally? What are the ethical consequences of such playful interruptions? Papers on non-mainstream directors are of particular interest.
