[UPDATE] Bridges and Borders Graduate/Undergraduate Conference

updated: 
Friday, December 4, 2009 - 12:39pm
English Graduate Advancement and Development Society at The University of Texas at Brownsville

The English Graduate Advancement and Development Society (EGADS!) at the University of Texas at Brownsville will host its annual graduate/undergraduate English studies conference on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010. This year's topic is "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."
Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.

[UPDATE] Poetry, Politics, and Pictures in the Nineteenth Century

updated: 
Friday, December 4, 2009 - 6:34am
Poetry Politics and Pictures in the Nineteenth Century, at the University of Sheffield

From 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' to 'The White Man's Burden', from Honoré Daumier's lithographs to the Chartist poetry of the Northern Star, the politics of the nineteenth century both shaped and were shaped by poetry and images.

This interdisciplinary conference at the University of Sheffield will address such questions as: how do the images and poetry of the nineteenth century reflect or challenge British and European politics of their day? How do nineteenth-century politics intersect with aesthetics to create new theories and practices of art? What kind of correlation might there be between political representation and the representation of politics in word and image?

We will consider aural and visual communication, along with varied metaphorical, cultural, and technological "literacies."
