"The End?": International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University 3/25-3/27

International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University

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?

As conceptual categories that both derive from and frame our understanding of particular works, genres are determined largely by what Ludwig Wittgenstein calls "family resemblances" rather than by particular qualities that all works in a given genre necessarily share. While ambiguities at the periphery of genres produce hybrid forms like the prose poem or collage, even works at the center of a genre are shaped by disputes at its edges. For example, one could argue that the growing popularity of the novel as a chief means of narrative expression at the end of the eighteenth century urged poets to re-conceive the fundamental features of their art, thereby shaping the conventions of Romantic poetry.

The University of Arkansas will be hosting its second annual graduate conference on literature and the humanities on April 9th and 10th, 2010.

Our goal is to promote communication and dialogue within the graduate community.

This year, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding our conference to include panels on creative writing as well: poetry, fiction, translation. Panel proposals are encouraged here as well.

There is no registration fee for the conference.
