sciences University of California Riverside's
Fourteenth Annual Graduate Humanities Conference
Abstract deadline: 1/5/07
The framework for (dis)junctions 2007:
Malappropriation Nation might be imagined in relation
to what the 20th century American poet Susan Howe
calls the idea of "Lawlessness," the acting outside of
acceptable boundaries and ideologies. In developing
this year's theme, we are hoping to formulate panels
in which conventional or popular theories are used and
in turn reworked/rethought/re-imagined in ways that

the familiar masks the strange. But does the quotidian confine,
define or liberate us?

CFP: The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason (1/10/07; SGES, 2/15/07-2/17/07)

Monday, December 11, 2006 - 11:26pm

Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
  The Gothic and the Sublime: Romanticism and Reason
  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

UPDATE: The Ethics of Passing (1/10/07; SGES, 2/15/07-2/17/07)

Monday, December 11, 2006 - 11:26pm

  The Ethics of Passing
  The concept of "passing" is not new to the American landscape. While racial/ethnic passing may be the most widely recognized form of passing, recent acceptance of queer and transgender studies reveals passing as more than a matter of skin color. The most general question, what are the ethics involved and undermined in participating in passing, opens the door to many other questions surrounding this issue. Does the actor always have control over her/his own ability to pass? What does it mean that someone can be passed without desiring such recognition? What kind of responsibility is involved in revealing ethnic, sexual, or gender "authenticity" if even the notion of the authentic has become problematic?
