PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association); October 19-20, 2012

This special session for the 2012 PAMLA Conference seeks papers that address constructions, representations, and interpretations of dreams and dreamlike states. What extent do we have control over our dreams? What is the purpose of dreaming, if such purpose exists? What of other, dream-like altered states of consciousness?

This session welcomes papers from across the disciplines. Please use the PAMLA 2012 site to submit a proposal before Saturday, March 31, 2012.

Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Conference- Jasbir Puar Keynote

Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.

This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.

Special Topics Session: "Subverting and Perverting: Bad Grrls in Fiction"

This special topics session is a follow up to a successful roundtable at the annual 2010 MELUS conference in Scranton, PA; the 2010 roundtable was inspired by poet-writer Marilyn Chin's _Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen_. In this novel, or book of tales, Chin's Chinese-American twin female protagonists subvert the dominant expectations of gender and sexuality. I am interested in paper proposals that examine the works of contemporary women writers who raise questions about gender and sexuality within and across various ethnicities.

Special Session: George Eliot's Middlemarch

updated: 
Thursday, December 29, 2011 - 3:08pm
British Women Writers Conference

In response to the conference topic on "Landmarks," I issue a call for papers for a special session panel at the 2012 British Women Writers Conference on George Eliot's Middlemarch. Not only is Eliot a landmark woman writer who wrote an important landmark in the history of the novel, her novel itself engages issue of landmarks in a wide variety of ways. The novel engages the high culture, Classical landmarks of Greece and Rome through the comparisons of Dorothea to a new Antigone, as well as through her honeymoon trip to Rome. But these well-known figures and sites of human history and achievement are implicitly contrasted to achievements, people and epochs that are not likely to be memorialized.
