As part of the 7th annual Northeastern University English Graduate Student Association Conference, alt/, we seek proposals for a special roundtable on innovative digital approaches to literary, historical, and/or cultural materials. The overall conference theme asks participants to consider "alt" as a generative concept, to consider and interpret alterities, alterations, and alternatives. Certainly digital humanities can be read as an "alt" movement within the academy—blurring disciplinary boundaries, upending traditional hierarchies, reimagining research methodologies and scholarly production. To that end, proposals for this special topics panel might address:
"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.
The organisers of the 2013 Postcolonial Studies Association would like to invite proposals for papers on this year's theme: 'History, Postcolonialism and Tradition'. The theme is designed to facilitate the opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue, particularly (but not exclusively) between the spheres of literature, cultural studies, anthropology, the visual arts, the performative arts, folklore, history, politics, and the social sciences.
Love of Wisdom Vs. Wisdom of Love
3rd Comparative Literature Graduate Conference
*Deadline for Abstract Submission: Feb.1st, 2013
Email to: WisdomLoveBuffalo@gmail.com
Insofar as philosophia concerns the "love of wisdom," the possibilities and limits of wisdom and love call into question the possibility of philosophy. As love and wisdom are consciously and unconsciously unified in the philosophers' pursuits of wisdom, could the wisdom of love have been supplemented, mixed or misled by the love of wisdom? Does it make philosophy as the result of philosophia problematic?

"The very fact that the public depends upon consequences of acts and the perception of consequences, while its organization into a state depends upon the ability to invent and employ special instrumentalities, shows how and why publics and political institutions differ widely from epoch to epoch and from place to place."
