[UPDATE] Oklahoma State University English Conference

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 4:08pm
English Graduate Student Association

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 12:49pm
Joseph Donica/Southern Illinois University

With the renewed focus on monuments and memorials after 9/11 new questions are being raised and old ones revisited about how objects become memorialized or even de-memorialized. And while it is clear to us now that the monument's physical presence is always in jeopardy of disappearing, it is not as clear how a monument's meaning travels in and out of various conceptual spaces as the monument changes physical shape or adapts to the cultural ceremonies or power shifts of states.

updated: 
Friday, December 3, 2010 - 11:05am
St. Bonaventure University--Olean, New York

Representations of the family in literature often come freighted with questions of cultural significance, economic arrangement, and political power. Whether critiqued as a normative cultural arrangement or hailed as the paramount political value, the family as the basic organizational unit of society reflects and often magnifies its literary milieu.
