The English Department of UMass Boston is pleased to announce our new annual event, Beacon: A Graduate Conference in the Humanities. For our inaugural conference, we are asking for papers that focus on the topics of interpretation and appropriation, and, in particular, how these terms intersect and interact with one another.

In the era of Edward Snowden, WikiLeaks, and corporate data-mining, our privacy seems like an endangered resource. Yet privacy has been an issue of contention for centuries, inviting debate at an intersection among literature, politics, and history. The privacy afforded to individuals, living in society with one another, is far from an unproblematic good, and its definition as well as its value relative to other goods, such as transparency or security, must be constantly negotiated.
