"Righting" and "Re-Writing" Wrongs" ACLA Annual Meeting April 1-4, 2010

Deborah Donig/ ACLA

Each new textual creation is in some way a reflection or mimesis. All literary creations are beholden to some narrative ancestor, some antecedent form, some prior idea. Our knowledge of the present moment, and our ability to tell of it, relies on how — and whether — past narratives were constructed. Stories depend on the stories that were told before them.

This is doubly the case with the sequel; for the offspring owes its very genesis directly to its predecessor, from which the sequel must then draw its cues.

[UPDATE] Nov.13, 2010 The 18th Annual English and American Literature Association Conference: Everyday Life and Literature

updated: 
Monday, November 16, 2009 - 7:56pm
English and American Literature Association of the Republic of China in Taiwan (EALA Taiwan) &Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures,National Chung Hsing University, Taichung, Taiwan

Literature is related to everyday life in a subtle way. Everyday life often manifests itself as the textual Other outside the major narrative thrust, and, therefore, receives scant critical attention in literary studies. In fact everyday life can be seen as an arena of two-way negotiation: it is where power reproduces itself in daily practice, but it is also where both personal and collective creativity intervenes in the reproduction of power. Moreover, everyday life often emerges, becomes visible, or acquires meaning through its engagement with other social categories—gender, race, class, ethnicity, nature, and so on, whose different relations with dominant regimes of power call for different strategies of everyday life practices.

Go Green: Die Germanistik und grünes Gedankengut, The 1st Montreal German Studies Graduate Student Conference 23-25 April 2010

updated: 
Sunday, November 15, 2009 - 9:14pm
McGill University & Université de Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The 4th graduate conference at McGill and the 1st in collaboration with Université de Montréal, this year's theme sees its justification in the steady rise of awareness toward environmental issues, a concern not solely limited to the political or scientific worlds, but also prevalent within the humanities. This awareness is corroborated, but at times also corrupted by the abundance of news coverage in the mainstream media that have increasingly presented climate change with an apocalyptic outlook.
