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

Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 1:53pm
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.
