Hurry! Call for Proposals to India's Annual Summit for Business Technologies Closes 30 June 2010!

Department of English, University of Ottawa
How do objects circulate in our social, imaginary, and textual worlds? What are the politics of material culture and how do these politics inform our reading of historical and contemporary texts? In what ways do we perceive and come to know the material world, and in what ways does the material make and unmake this "we"? Proposals for papers are invited for a conference on Material Cultures in Canadian and Transnational Contexts, the 2011 edition of the Canadian Literature Symposium at the University of Ottawa. Interdisciplinary, hemispheric, and theoretical approaches to the conference theme are welcome.
