The Graduate English Organization of Truman State University is proud to
announce the call for papers for their annual conference April 10-11,

breaking down of culture and art, the imaginative implosions within the
written word, or simply those ideas that are not just out of the box but
crush it.

Globalization. Neoliberalism. Planetarities. Contemporary critical
discourse attempting to address the relationship between local
cultural/sociopolitical trends and global systemic developments is
frequently marked by the use of theoretical models that (by virtue of being
employed as means of simplification rather than complication) gradually

over-used and theoretically under-developed discussions of "globalization"
and "neoliberalism" that point out that there is a link between global and
local and that stop at the vague suggestion that we can "trace the global
in the local" arguably help us little in the effort to concretely

Jewishness in interethnic contexts that move beyond the standard
articulations of black/Jewish relations.
