New Voices Graduate Student Conference

New Voices is an interdisciplinary graduate student conference hosted by Georgia State University's English department and sponsored by the department's Graduate English Association. The conference is designed to provide emerging and experienced graduate scholars in the humanities with a forum for sharing their latest research. While the conference has a different suggested theme each year, adherence to the suggested theme is not at all necessary to be considered for inclusion in the conference. New Voices invites papers on all topics and themes related not only to English studies, but all other humanities disciplines as well as the social sciences and political science.

2014 Suggested Theme:
Origins, Identity, and Authenticity

Lateral Aesthetics (Collected Edition) UPDATE

updated: 
Wednesday, July 17, 2013 - 11:04pm
California State University

In her essay "Slow Death: Sovereignty, Obesity, Lateral Agency," cultural theorist Lauren Berlant contrasts "lateral agency" with the sovereign agency of the neoliberal subject. Where sovereign agency builds, intends, and extends the self via a purposive and propulsive will, lateral agency floats, spreads, hovers, and spaces out, interrupting the breakneck pace of capitalist production and suspending the self's forward motion. For Berlant, lateral agency symptomizes the exhaustion and attrition of the individual's will, particularly individuals of the working class, at the same time as it expresses a kind of pleasure in practices of self-abeyance.

Johan Huizinga's Homo Ludens: 75 Years Later (January 15-17 2014)
An Interdisciplinary Conference on Play as the grounding Structure of Reality

The end of this year will be marked by the 75th anniversary of Johan Huizinga's classic study of the Homo Ludens. Its main thesis is as striking as it is simple: Culture is founded on and as a form of play. Huizinga's historical, philosophical and anthropological aim was to understand play as a 'totality'. The element of play can be observed in all different aspects of culture, ranging from seemingly innocuous leisure activities to the uttermost serious and advanced systems, such as the financial world, political institutions, mass media and warfare.
