"Language: It's Alive!" 12th Annual English Graduate Student Conference, January 20th, 2012]

updated: 
Friday, November 11, 2011 - 3:19pm
UNC Charlotte, English Graduate Student Associate

UNC Charlotte's 12th Annual English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) conference is looking for new work across the disciplines that explores the dynamic and situated qualities of language. Language exists in and is created through multiple and shifting contexts; as scholars, creators, and analysts, we imbue language with meaning and give it life. As we explore our role in the creation of meaning, it becomes important to examine the frameworks we bring to language, and the implications thereof. And in doing so, we must also acknowledge the reflexive dimension of language use and the ways it acts upon and shapes us.
