"… Oh! I would not tell you what is behind the black veil for the world! Are not you wild to know?"
"Oh! Yes, quite; what can it be? But do not tell me — I would not be told upon any account. I know it must be a skeleton, I am sure it is Laurentina's skeleton. Oh! I am delighted with the book! I should like to spend my whole life in reading it..."
- Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

The seventh annual AEGIS (Association of English Graduate Instructors and Students) graduate conference invites paper proposals on interdisciplinary topics in revelation, revulsion, and revolution in literature, cinema, the writing process, popular culture and art, or in creative works of short fiction and poetry that explore this theme.

IRELAND AND MASCULINITIES IN THE LONGUE DURÉE

In recent years, scholars of culture and literature have begun to elaborate on masculinities in the contemporary Irish context. While providing an invaluable starting point for discussion of Irish masculinities, these studies have tended to focus on the postmodern, with highly theoretical emphases in the findings. 

Moreover, normative and hegemonic masculinities remain largely unquestioned, and historical contexts and continuities are often ignored or neglected.

Translating Precarity- ACLA, 4-7 April 2013- University of Toronto

Walt Hunter and Anne-Lise François

Although recent criticism in literary studies has focused on the everyday and the ordinary, this seminar instead maps out a place for the precarious. The term precarity has been heard more and more frequently in political philosophy, economics, anthropology, and critical theory. Current discussions of precarity are shaped by the work of Paulo Virno, who describes it as "the chronic instability of forms of life," and by Judith Butler, who conceives of precarity as a shared vulnerability on the basis of which we might found a tentative community. The French philosopher Guillaume le Blanc refers to precarity as the unraveling of the socially-constructed self, the "unmaking" of making.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s English Graduate Organization

Morality and ethics shape our lives in a plethora of ways. It affects how individuals act on a daily basis, interact with one another, and—most tellingly—act when faced with important decisions that could influence culture and history. Personal morals are not only indicators of who a person truly is but also of their perceptions on their society, life and death, and quality and worth of life.
