Another Way In:
the unseen Influences that change our worlds.

Boston College's graduate community will host a biannual literary conference on Saturday, March 31, 2007 at Boston College's Yawkey Center. This conference builds upon our traditional Colloquium sessions by expanding outward to take advantage of the rich individual and institutional scholarship in the Northeastern U.S. We are looking for papers that touch upon our conference topic, a closer look at unseen influences whose movements across time, space, or community bring change. From viruses, carriers, and contaminants to inspiration and sublimation, these are the intangible forces we invite or dread. We invite you to interpret the topic broadly, but some topics might include:

Acacia Conference

This conference seeks to address the myriad definitions of ethics and how it
is represented in literature and other texts. The moment of ethical
decision often occurs at the point of impasse, of dilemma, of crisis that
springs from the space between two opposing ideas, when an easy or
prescriptive decision is not possible. Rather, each impasse requires an
ethical, scriptive fluidity whose focus is social as well as personal;
ambivalence, therefore, emerges as an ethical response to such a crisis. To
be sure, though, this space is difficult to occupy, much less sustain. In
Gayatri Spivak's words, "ethics is the experience of the impossible." What

Animals and Agency

(MLA panel arranged by the Association for the Study of Literature
and the Environment)

Proposals are invited for presentations that explore literary
representations of animality, especially those that deal with the
agency and subjectivity of animals.

How do representations of animals undermine or complicate the
boundary that supposedly differentiates animals from humans?

How are animals constructed, and how do they undo those constructions?

Submit 300-word abstracts by March 1, 2007 to Sarah McFarland at
mcfarlands_at_nsula.edu.

Questions are welcome!
