Intertexuality: Conversations Between the Sheets
English Graduate Student Conference
The University of Tulsa
March 30-31, 2007

Call for papers and panels:

"Conversations Between the Sheets" is concerned with the direct and/or indirect discourse between texts that takes place when authors (whoever an author may be—from a single writer or coauthors to a community of editors, publishers, booksellers, etc.) interact with each other—alluding, referencing, paraphrasing, quoting, borrowing, sharing, stealing, extending, challenging, or opposing each others' ideas. Whether it is in the form of support, abuse, or simply recognition of ideas between writers, texts converse with each other.

Heidegger and Joyce: Call for Contributors to an upcoming Anthology

We are seeking to round out a collection with a few essays connecting the
thinking of Heidegger to the works of James Joyce. The underlying goal of
this collection will be to open up avenues for thinking of Joyce as an
equally valid instantiation of the "poetizing-thinking" tradition which
Heidegger located in Holderlin among others.
