Multilingual Early Middle English

updated: 
Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 5:00am
Early Middle English Society for Kalamazoo 2013

Multilingual Early Middle English
This panel is interested in papers that reimagine the boundaries of Early Middle English in a multilingual milieu. We are interested in papers that think about multilingualism on the page, multilingual texts in one manuscript, or how multilingualism can make Early Middle English an interesting expertimental zone for code-switching and mixed language. We are also interested in how other media (music, visual, etc.) may also help reimagine multilingualism and the production of early Middle English.

Please send abstracts to: dokim@vassar.edu by September 15

ASU 18th Southwest English Symposium: -isms, -ologies, and -istics: Conversations Across the Disciplines

updated: 
Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 4:03pm
Graduate Scholars of English Association

February 15-16, 2013
Contact Us: swes.asu@gmail.com

Given the multifaceted nature of English departments, the aim of this conference is to explore a cross-disciplinary conversation about ideologies and ideas. Because disciplines are largely characterized by their theoretical movements or opposition to such movements, submissions to this conference are encouraged to focus on suffixes. For instance, how do the suffixes of academia play a role in specific fields of study? How might -isms, -ologies, and -istics reinforce the sometimes disparate conversations among or within disciplines? How can they build connections between disciplines?
