"Durrell and the City" will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Alexandria Quartet with a reassessment of the cities, especially Alexandria, that have been associated with Durrell's life and work. We will encourage a variety of perspectives and theoretical approaches—historical, biographical, sociological, psychoanalytic, textual, environmental and cultural—in order to create a "multiple-mirror" effect and explore how Durrell's cities are the major "characters" in his fiction.

"The End?": International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University 3/25-3/27

International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "The End?" to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010.

Bookends, happy endings, at wits' end, means to an end, split ends, making ends meet… the list could go on. We imagine the end in endless ways when we think about our languages, our cultures, our disciplines, our arts, and ourselves. What sort of ends are we at, or fast approaching? What ends have we passed? When we structure our thinking around an ending, do we imply a certain teleology? Do we point to a moment of division or rupture? Do we ask about a new beginning?
