victorian -- Digital Humanities special panel -- 3/16-3/17/2013, proposals due 1/15

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 8:51pm
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.

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)

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.

Insofar as philosophia concerns the "love of wisdom," the possibilities and limits of wisdom and love call into question the possibility of philosophy. As love and wisdom are consciously and unconsciously unified in the philosophers' pursuits of wisdom, could the wisdom of love have been supplemented, mixed or misled by the love of wisdom? Does it make philosophy as the result of philosophia problematic?
