UNC Charlotte's 12th Annual English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) conference is looking for new work across the disciplines that explores the dynamic and situated qualities of language. Language exists in and is created through multiple and shifting contexts; as scholars, creators, and analysts, we imbue language with meaning and give it life. As we explore our role in the creation of meaning, it becomes important to examine the frameworks we bring to language, and the implications thereof. And in doing so, we must also acknowledge the reflexive dimension of language use and the ways it acts upon and shapes us.

For a conversational panel on Emerson's practical and philosophical impact on Thoreau, the Emerson Society invites brief papers that consider Emerson as an example, mentor, or antagonist for Thoreau, their shared practices of walking and journal writing, and the implications of Emerson's 1862 eulogy for Thoreau.
