Graduate Conference

"Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge." – Lord Byron

This conference is interested in exploring the concept of the spaces between – genres, cultures, times, people, movements, nations – the possibilities are endless. How do these spaces confine? How do they enable? What moves between? What exists within?

MadLit 2013: Between Surface and Depth, February 28-March 1, 2013

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 11:33am
University of Wisconsin-Madison

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's ninth annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit) will be held February 28–March 1, 2013. This year's conference, "Between Surface and Depth," investigates how humanistic disciplines articulate notions of superficiality and depth in their scholarly practices. Building from the debates surrounding Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus's "Surface Reading: An Introduction" (Representations 108.1 (Fall 2009): 1–21), this conference will explore the implications of using spatial models to conceptualize the location of meaning in language, literature, and discourse.

Northeastern University EGSA Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

As part of the 7th annual Northeastern University English Graduate Student Association Conference, alt/, we seek proposals for a special roundtable on innovative digital approaches to literary, historical, and/or cultural materials. The overall conference theme asks participants to consider "alt" as a generative concept, to consider and interpret alterities, alterations, and alternatives. Certainly digital humanities can be read as an "alt" movement within the academy—blurring disciplinary boundaries, upending traditional hierarchies, reimagining research methodologies and scholarly production. To that end, proposals for this special topics panel might address:

[UPDATE] 7th Annual Graduate Conference: "alt/" (March 16-17, 2013; abstracts due 12/15)

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 8:41pm
Northeastern University English Graduate Student Association

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.
