ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:
We are all in the business of circulation: As scholars and educators,
we wrestle with an ever-evolving canon, we work to recover lost texts,
we launch websites and blogs to reach a wider audience. In the
classroom and with our colleagues, we publish, present, and stake our
claims. In short, we traffic in ideas.

Transgression Conference

Fall 2007 Graduate Student Conference of the UC Berkeley Department of
French

October 11 and 12th, 2007

Paths of Desire: Itineraries as Transgression.

Paths of desire: A term appearing in studies of landscape design as well as
architecture, which refers to the paths we trace when our desires lead us
off the beaten track and a trail forms behind us. This notion both
encompasses the incidental and manifests longing, and brings to light the
importance of both the traverser and the traversal. These figures are key
to the shaping of physical and theoretical topographies. No itinerary is
undertaken without motivation, or without leaving a mark.
