Butch Voices, Queer Communities

Butch Voices

Butch Voices will be holding its first ever multifocal conference and forum for all selfidentified butches, studs, aggressives, and other allied identities. We are a group of openminded, gender-bending social justice activists who share a commitment to critical thinking and a common goal of building a powerful, inclusive community for us all.

The conference will take place August 20 through August 23, 2009 in Oakland, California. We invite you to join us for four days of workshops, panels, and performances intended to reflect the diversity and complexity of butch gender, identity, and action. On the one hand, butch, stud, and aggressive are hyper-visible identities; on the other, our voices too often go unheard or are misunderstood.

In his analysis of the history of mathematics, Gaston Bachelard calls for a reversal of perspectives on the complexity of reasoning: "[…] the simple is in fact always simplified: it can only be thought of correctly when appearing to be the product of a process of simplification." (L'Épistémologie non cartésienne.) Likewise, in literature and in the visual arts, the particularity of authors, what one has come to call their "little music", what makes them irreducible to others, is not only the fruit of their genius, but also a meticulous construction, the product of a particularising process, constructions based on what Claude Lévi-Strauss designates as signifying structural choices (La Voie des masques). The particular is thus actually particularised.

Curriculum, Politics, and the Student/Teacher of English:The 2nd Conference on the Future of English Studies; October 16-17 2009

Sunday, March 15, 2009 - 1:47pm
University of Illinois @ Springfield

According to Terry Eagleton, English as a discipline was installed in England's universities to take up the slack when, in the 19-century, religion stopped providing the ideological glue required for social cohesion. Today there are increasing signs that, with its traditional emphasis on literature, English is going the way of religion as an agent of cohesion and unity. The question, not only of the future of English, but of the humanities as well, looms large.

This is a call for contributors for a panel being proposed for the 2009 Modern Language Association Convention, to be held in Philadelphia in December 2009; I am also planning to put together an edited collection on the same topic, so any abstracts that are submitted for the MLA panel will also be considered for the proposed volume.
