We are seeking creative and/or critical submissions for a panel on issues of transformation and space. This panel will
occur as part of the Association of English Graduate Students' 19th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference, entitled "Trans--
: Negotiations and Resistance," to be held at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Possible papers might engage theories of space and/or specific spaces; literary or literal spaces; public or private
spaces; etc. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers, and papers that address the following questions:
How are spaces transformed? How do spaces transform? What are the benefits and/or limitations of thinking of space in
terms of transformation?
