VIOLENCE

Keynote Speaker: Smaro Kamboureli, University of Guelph

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted." – Ellen Glasgow

Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.

Piecing Together Cultural Identity: Negotiation, Creation & Myth

updated: 
Wednesday, December 21, 2011 - 3:27pm
University of New Mexico

We are seeking contributions that investigate the interdisciplinary implications of identity formation in fields such as literature, anthropology, cultural studies, philosophy, art history, political science, and sociology. Negotiation of identity takes place in a network of vast and turbulent discourses. Political, sexual, ethnic and economical constructions interplay with the present idealization of individuality and choice. How one defines oneself is vital to how one interacts with the world, the choices that we make, the ideas that we support: what is identity or what does identity consist of? Is it a myth, a construction that we choose, or something thrust upon us?
