Coordinates of Comparison: Text, Readers, & Theories
Comparative Literature Conference
29–31 August 2007
University of Alberta
Edmonton, AB

CALL FOR PAPERS

Comparative Literature has traditionally been centred on the
comparison of texts from diverse languages and cultures. Texts,
however, are merely one coordinate where comparisons converge; more
recent scholarship has taken comparative analysis to other regions of
investigation, including readers themselves and the theories that
underpin literary research. Exploring the territories that map the
comparative field is the concern of this conference; we solicit papers
from any field concerned with the study of literature.

"Aesthetics & (Self) Deception"

French Graduate Student Association Grad Conference

University of Washington, Seattle

12-13 October, 2007

Keynote Speaker: Matei Calinescu, Indiana University

The nature and utility of representation are topics that have long
been debated, in terms of their controversial power to blur the
distinction between truth and lies, reality and illusion, pedagogy
and pure entertainment. Looking back on the development of this
debate, to what extent do we perpetuate, within a (post)modern and
(post)colonial world, issues related to the dangers and shortcomings
of representation?
