3rd Global Conference
The Value of Work

Sunday 1st September – Tuesday 3rd September 2013

Call for Presentations
This conference aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus on a fundamental aspect of human life: work.

Work has pervasive influence on human life. Where we live, how we live, how we learn and how we see the world is strongly shaped by the work we do. Since the industrial revolution some of the expected benefits of the implementation of technology, and contemporary management have not been realised.

Ad mea tempora: Ovid in Ovidian Times (Graduate Colloquium) - March 9, 2013 - Abstracts due January 1, 2013

Thursday, December 6, 2012 - 11:16pm
Warburg Institute

It is by now a critical commonplace to observe that the last 30 years have seen a dramatic reversal in Ovid's critical fortunes. From a maligned harbinger of Silver Latin, Ovid has moved to the centre of Latin literary criticism and classical reception studies. This critical reappraisal can, of course, be understood as a reversion to a periodic historical norm, with Ovid returning to the high esteem in which he was held for much of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. At the same time, the recent Ovidian revival seems to follow, almost inevitably, from contemporary cultural conditions: Ovid's irony and wit, the kaleidoscopically intertextual texture of his poetry.

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

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.

In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).

[UPDATE] Health, Mental Health, and Literature - Graduate English Conference

Boston College

Health, Mental Health, and Literature

The Boston College English Graduate Conference seeks abstracts for papers that consider the intersection between health, mental health, and literature.

Considering recent interdisciplinary developments in the field of Medical Humanities, we are interested in exploring the ways in which literature and other creative arts have attempted to represent or otherwise understand health, which is so often analyzed from a clinical or scientific perspective. We seek papers that work to synthesize clinical approaches and literary approaches to the mind and body. What can be gained by merging multiple perspectives?

"Worlds Between: Exploring the Borders, Boundaries, and Gaps that Divide and Bind"

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?
