That end does not seem to be forthcoming in the present age, as new and old forms of manufacturing truth and emplotting history continue to affect our representations of the world.
This conference invites papers that address this topic from a variety of positions within Cultural Studies. We welcome papers dealing specifically with issues such as the following:

The focus of the 2007 RMMLA panel on "Literature & Fashion" is open regarding genre and period; however, we are specifically interested in papers that explore the "materiality" of clothing in shaping the context of identity and in shaping the practices that continually [trans]form identity--or, adversely, impede its transformation or essentialize it--for either/both wearer and observer.

UPDATE: Creative Writing Theory (grad) (2/16/07; (dis)junctions, 4/6/07-4/7/07)

This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions 2007: Malappropriation Nation at the University of California Riverside’s 14th Annual Humanities Graduate Conference on April 6-7, 2007.

Critical theory, while long present in English departments within critical studies of literature, has been largely missing from the teaching of creative writing. However, recent applications of theory to creative writing studies have allowed unexpected and rewarding results. With this in mind, participants are invited to submit works that deal with the application of critical theory of creative writing.

Levinas and Narrative

Guest Editors: Sandor Goodhart and Monica Osborne

Deadline for Submissions: 30 March, 2007

To date, there have been two major ways of understanding the work of Emmanuel
Levinas. In the philosophical tradition, Levinas first attracted the attention
of Jean-Paul Sartre as a reader of Husserl and the phenomenological tradition;
later, thanks to the work of Jacques Derrida and other poststucturalists,
Levinas acquired caché for his work on ethics and his critique of Heidegger.
