Remnants, Remainders, and Reconceptualizations
March 23-25, 2006

Department of English
York University
Toronto, Canada

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?
