The peer-reviewed "Journal of Philosophy: A Cross-Disciplinary Inquiry" is dedicated to bringing western and non-western humanities currents into dialogue with each other. It publishes articles, comments, and reviews, and each issue includes an interview with a known figure in philosophy, literature, or literary theory. The journal is most interested in themes of contemporary or perennial importance in the areas of philosophy, aesthetics and literature, written from post-structuralist, critical theory, deconstructionist, post-colonial and/or non-western philosophical perspectives. The journal is edited in the United States and produced in Nepal, and is sponsored by the Society for Philosophy and Literary Studies of Nepal.
What does literature evoke in us? Can a text provoke, and can literature transform? Why do we find some texts comforting and satisfying, while others agitate and disturb us?
We invite you to explore these questions at the English Graduate Advancement and Development Society's (EGADS!) annual graduate/undergraduate English-studies conference, "Literature: Its Pain, Its Pleasure," on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011, at the conference website: http://www.egadsconference2011.org.
