Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments?

MadLit 2013: Between Surface and Depth

updated:

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.
