Graduate Conference in Literature and Rhetoric/Composition

Our third annual Graduate Conference would like to examine the ways in

and places?

THAT is â€"‘Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of

D. H. Lawrence once stated that it is hard to hear a new voice, as hard as
it is to listen to an unknown language. It is precisely around this analogy
that Lawrence’s claim becomes political. What is it that makes the spoken
word unintelligible? It is not simply a matter of speaking in a language
unknown to others. Rather, the problem lies in not being understood or
heard despite shared language. Deleuze’s notion of minor literature becomes
the aegis for such thinking. Posited as a practice of politics, minor
literature seeks the conditions of possibility of becoming a nomad in
relation to one’s own language. This nomadic relation to the major language

Transnational Humanity: The Invention of Human Rights through the
Nineteenth-Century Novel

This ACLA seminar will explore the transatlantic invention of human rights,
and the construction of the multivalent discourse of “humanity,” through
the nineteenth-century novel. Novels have participated in directing and
redirecting the discourse of the “human”â€"the human as closed system, as
biopolitical species-being unit, as rational individualâ€"by charting
interiorities that are deemed to constitute a “human.”
