"The End?": International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University 3/25-3/27

International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "The End?" to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010.

Bookends, happy endings, at wits' end, means to an end, split ends, making ends meet… the list could go on. We imagine the end in endless ways when we think about our languages, our cultures, our disciplines, our arts, and ourselves. What sort of ends are we at, or fast approaching? What ends have we passed? When we structure our thinking around an ending, do we imply a certain teleology? Do we point to a moment of division or rupture? Do we ask about a new beginning?

"Me from Myself, to vanish
had I art,
Impregnable my fortress,
of all heart
And since myself attacked me,
how have I peace,
except by subjugation consciousness,
And since we are mutual monarch,
how this be,
except by abdication,
me to me"

-Emily Dickinson

Between Alienations: Mimicry, Parody, and Desire in Transnational Spaces

updated: 
Thursday, November 5, 2009 - 1:23am
American Comparative Literature Association

The presence of a transnational community entails the recognition of a non-singular national identity, a paradigm understood, variously, as a shattered norm or a hybrid ideal. While focusing on how this transnationality gives voice to diaspora and creole communities, we will examine how transnational spaces, bodies, and motion are constructed from forms of mimicry and parody already extant within the construction of the nation-state. Is what Judith Butler calls "an insurrection at the level of ontology" required to make room for such potentially monstrous or alien proliferations? This seminar welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines, geographical areas, and scholarly perspectives.
