2013 SFU Grad Conference - Dreaming Dangerously: Imagining the Utopian, the Nostalgic, the Possible

Nostalgia itself has a utopian dimension, only it is no longer directed toward the future. Sometimes nostalgia is not directed towards the past either, but rather sideways. The nostalgic feels stifled within the conventional confines of time and space.
–Svetlana Boym, The Future of Nostalgia xiv

So where do we stand now, in 2012? 2011 was the year of dreaming dangerously, of the revival of radical emancipatory politics all around the world. Now a year later, every day brings new evidence of how fragile and inconsistent that awakening was.

Faced with pressure to quantify and possibly to commodify our research and our teaching through the narrow and potentially homogenizing parameters of concepts such as 'impact', many researchers and teachers in English departments seem to retreat from the challenge of affirming what it is that we value in the study and teaching of English.

Repetition - with a difference? :: May 9-10, 2013

updated: 
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 - 3:59pm
English Graduate Conference at University of Toronto

Last year we heard Barack Obama say "Yes, we can" for a second time, and saw Youtube viewers watch and re-watch Psy's "Gangnam Style" for the billionth time (really!): we live surrounded by repetition. As scholars embedded in a culture obsessed with imitation, parody, and countless other forms of re- acting, we ought to ask one another "what is the significance of repetition?" When is it a form of questioning or deconstruction, and when is it simply re(in)statement or obsession? We invite you to join us as we explore the ontological, political, ethical, and literary implications of repetition.

The California Journal of Women Writers

The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.

Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors.
