Reviving and Revisioning Work: Examining Class

updated: 
Monday, December 5, 2011 - 10:06pm
Second Annual University of Houston Graduate Literature Conference March 31, 2012

Between the recession, partisan rhetoric about class war, and the current Occupy movement, class has moved to the forefront of American political consciousness. Class is also something we can't avoid in the academy--whether we're talking about the relative place of men and women (Schell); WPAs, professors, and TAs (Bousquet, Scott); literature and composition (Miller); the university and the community (Mathieu); undergraduate students; or the literary canon and authors that we study. This is a kairotic moment to reexamine our assumptions about class and look more deeply at the class implications in our literature, our languages, our classrooms, and our communities.

Debt: Money/Narrative/Belief (August 17-19, 2012)

Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students in English (DAGSE)

In her 2008 Massey Lectures, Margaret Atwood calls debt "that peculiar nexus where money, narrative or story, and religious belief intersect, often with explosive force." Today, we are facing an explosion of discourses foregrounding financial debt. Whether in the Euro Zone Debt Crisis, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, or rising student loan debt, narrative and debt cannot be decoupled, nor can they be detached from a given political or affective investment. In addition to the obvious economic concerns, we are also interested in widening the discussion of debt: How do literature and cultural products help us make sense of these issues?
