Borders and Boundaries
Graduate Conference in Literature and Rhetoric/Composition
Southern Illinois University-Carbondale
March 27-28, 2009

Our third annual Graduate Conference would like to examine the ways in
which borders and boundaries enter the dialogue of literary, cultural, and
theoretical works. How are borders and boundaries established, questioned,
or deconstructed? In what ways are these delineations significant? In
what ways do they reflect the cultural geographies of particular periods
and places?

“Ah well! It means much the same thing,” said the Duchess, digging her
sharp little chin into Alice’s shoulder as she added, “and the moral of
THAT is â€"‘Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of
themselves.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

Transnational Humanity: The Invention of Human Rights through the
Nineteenth-Century Novel

This ACLA seminar will explore the transatlantic invention of human rights,
and the construction of the multivalent discourse of “humanity,” through
the nineteenth-century novel. Novels have participated in directing and
redirecting the discourse of the “human”â€"the human as closed system, as
biopolitical species-being unit, as rational individualâ€"by charting
interiorities that are deemed to constitute a “human.”
