The medium is the message. Using this conceptual framework, our conference will explore how historical changes in media from the oral to the digital lead to the emergence of hybrid literary forms and the constant reinvention of literariness itself. With the revolution of (e)merging technologies as our schema, we seek pluralistic and interdisciplinary research on the dynamic network linking modes of communication, mass media and textuality.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

The Glamour of Grammar (Kalamazoo 2010)

If conventional, twenty-first-century thinking holds that grammar is a dull set of descriptions and prescriptions consisting only of skeletal schemes of morphology and syntax, it is worth remembering that these structures have crystallized out of a more dynamic mass of language. Grammar is theory—a way of seeing patterns and paradigms that only become visible when one steps back from mundane, everyday exchanges (which for the most part do not extend beyond immediate concerns—and can often be negotiated nonverbally) and seeks to comprehend the rules that permit more complex interactions.

Queer Belonging in the Eighteenth Century

American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies, Gay and Lesbian Caucus

In her essay, "Queer Belongings: Kinship Theory and Queer Theory," Elizabeth Freeman asks, "Does kinship theory matter to queer theory?" In her essay, Freeman answers that it does, but what material for kinship theorists can those of us working in the eighteenth century offer? In what sense is the notion of the family challenged and how are other units of belonging articulated? Papers on this topic are invited for ASECS 2010.

Please send a 300 word abstract, and a CV to both Michael Taylor (mttaylor@ucalgary.ca) and Kristi Krumnow (kristi.krumnow@usu.edu) by September 10, 2009.
