Call for Papers
Deadline extended: July 30, 2008

The Organization of Graduate Students in Comparative Literature (OGSCL) is
welcoming papers for an interdisciplinary conference held at the University
of Massachusetts Amherst on October 11th and 12th.

The 2008 Crossroads Conference envisions a student dialogue on the
extraordinary outcomes of cultural encounters, national and ideological
borders, disciplines in interaction, the overlapping of distinct historical
periods, the interweaving of literary genres, the symbiosis between
academics and social change, and the foreplays between rhetorics of war,
freedom, memory, and silence.
