I, S/He, We, They: Writing Lives and Life Writing

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 - 6:44am
Boston College

As the Presidential Theme for the 2011 MLA conference indicates, life writing is a critical element in the contemporary landscape of literary studies. The Boston College Biennial English Graduate Conference invites papers that investigate the many roles that life writing plays in the creation and analysis of discourse. Whether examining transnational narratives, ancient oral traditions, modern diaries and letters, or groundbreaking documentary film, the vast array of possibilities for life writing allows us to bring together distinct points of view in productive ways.

The 16th annual conference focuses on Victorian obsessions with vulgarity and propriety.

We encourage papers across all disciplines, including (but not restricted to) art history, literature, gender, history of science, history, material culture, political science, performance, life writings, journalism, photography, popular culture, and economics.
