Though Americanist scholarship of the past quarter-century has focused almost exclusively on the political and ideological, questions of culture, identity, and exceptionalism have more often than not supplanted rather than complemented economic analysis. With the advent of the 2008 global financial crisis, however, economic concerns have again risen to the fore.

The history of consciousness is the history of the evolution of culture across millennia, between biological forms, and amongst societies. The theoretical ideas and representations of consciousness are expressed through such disciplines and phenomena as literature, art, religion, science, death, mysticism, and technology - to name only a few – and are often divisive in regards to age, gender, (dis)ability, animality, and materiality.

Major Minors: Neglected and New Issues in Literary Studies

The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University

LSU Student Union

February 16th & 17th, 2012

Keynote Address by Meredith McGill, Rutgers University

The literary canon, that sacred body of texts and genres that we deem high art, stands surrounded today by rapidly expanding interests in newer or long-neglected works.

Meanwhile, archival efforts and the expanding resources of the internet have made available works and authors otherwise inaccessible, opening study to vast materials heretofore unknown or ignored.
