The Interdisciplinary Graduate Students Association at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, invites you to attend our third annual graduate student conference.

The next annual conference of the Australasian Victorian Studies Association (AVSA) will take place on 25-27 June 2010 in Singapore, hosted by the Centre of the Liberal Arts & Social Sciences (CLASS) and the Division of English at Nanyang Technological University.
To mark this move to Asia, the theme of the conference held in 2010 will be "Re-Orienting the Victorians." This "re-orientation" is intended to comprise any form of reformulation or re-conceptualisation of the field and its analysis, inviting redirections beyond geographical extensions of the long nineteenth century.
In an effort to promote scholarly discourse in all disciplines and fields, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Washington, Seattle invites graduate students to submit papers addressing notions of adaptation, a concept Dudley Andrew calls, "potentially as far reaching as you like" (Andrew, Concepts in Film Theory, 1984). The appearance of two journals dedicated to adaptation studies in the past two years along with the proliferation of theoretical texts on the subject testify to the ever-increasing reach of the topic.

Visual Arts in the 21st Century
We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "The End?" to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010.
Bookends, happy endings, at wits' end, means to an end, split ends, making ends meet… the list could go on. We imagine the end in endless ways when we think about our languages, our cultures, our disciplines, our arts, and ourselves. What sort of ends are we at, or fast approaching? What ends have we passed? When we structure our thinking around an ending, do we imply a certain teleology? Do we point to a moment of division or rupture? Do we ask about a new beginning?
Academic Exchange Quarterly

Or, can the classroom remain void of culture?
*Can culture influence what kind of literary genres are produced/ published?
*How does literature convey culture?
