"Theorizing Mobility in Transnational Literature" : Deadline for Abstracts 9/30/10 [UPDATE]

updated: 
Sunday, September 12, 2010 - 12:15pm
Northeast Modern Language Association annual convention 4/6-4/10

Increased movement of populations, information, and capital in the era of globalization has produced an emphasis in literary studies on the migrant, the cosmopolitan, and the exile, but little focus on practices of mobility. This panel will address treatments of mobility in transnational literature. Topics include, but are not limited to, migration, border crossing, cosmopolitanism, planetarity, and wanderlust. Please send 250-500 word abstracts to Penny Vlagopoulos, pigi.vlagopoulos@tamiu.edu, and Nicole Rizzuto, nicole.rizzuto@okstate.edu.

This panel seeks papers that explore the multifaceted inter-relationship between female characters and the city from the fin de siècle to World War II.

Please send a 300-word abstract and brief bio to Elizabeth Foley O'Connor (lizfoley@gmail.com).

Manifest Identity

updated: 
Thursday, September 9, 2010 - 11:50am
NC State Association of English Graduate Students



At our second annual Association of English Graduate Students Symposium, we wish to explore the many ways that identity manifests itself as an object for study. The concept of identity permeates every text, from its narrator's organizing gaze to the the genre in which it is catalogued. Indeed, we invite you to question the term "text" itself, as "text" has come to be identified as anything from a novel to a Facebook page to a film.
