Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures

Thursday, September 17, 2009 - 5:13pm
University of Texas at Brownsville English Graduate Advancement and Development Society

The English Graduate Advancement and Development Society (EGADS!) at the University of Texas at Brownsville is proud to host its annual graduate/undergraduate English studies conference on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010. This year's topic is "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."
Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.

The Afterlife of Raleigh (MLA 2011) [3/1/10]

updated: 
Thursday, September 17, 2009 - 4:30pm
Gina Caison & John Garrison, University of California, Davis

We request paper proposals for a proposed special session at the 2011 MLA convention in Los Angeles, CA. While the afterlives of figures such as Elizabeth I have received increased popular and scholarly attention in recent years thanks in part to diverse depictions in film and historical fiction, Walter Raleigh has remained a less-examined figure, despite appearances in diverse media and a rich literary and historical afterlife. This panel seeks papers that consider that afterlife and its implications for scholarship. This panel hopes to open the existing dialogue about Raleigh beyond the geographic and temporal borders of Early Modern England.

Ethnic Transformation in the Self and the City: April 8 - 11, 2010, University of Scranton, Scranton, PA

Thursday, September 17, 2009 - 10:32am
24th Annual Conference of Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States (MELUS)

People make cities and cities make people. Reductive as that claim is, it stands at the heart of much of the ethnic American experience. Immigrants originally inherit the cities in which they settle. Then, as they come to know their new culture and as their children grow and develop, they remake their communities, creating places that reflect the multiple strands of their origins. For scholars of ethnic literature, American cities stand, in part, as texts themselves. They reflect the immigrant experience as it has taken place, and they contextualize the possibility for future immigration.
