Interventions in English Studies: Finding Our Places

Saturday, December 7, 2013 - 4:22pm
The University of Dayton

"When I cannot see words curling like rings of smoke round me I am in darkness ­I am nothing." -Virginia Woolf, The Waves

In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies, The University of Dayton invites you to join us March 29, 2014 for a graduate conference devoted to an exploration of the space and place that words create. How does space inform our identities as writers? How do we perceive space, literally and figuratively, in literature? How does race or gender influence the space we are given, or take, in society? Where is our place in the classroom and what can we do with it?

Literati 2014: Speaking Bodies
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI

Textual bodies have long served as a battleground for conceiving of the human body. Through the lens of literature, people have fathomed the body's limits, its relationship to identity, its ability to liberate or enchain. Literati 2014's theme, "Speaking Bodies," asks, What does it mean to be embodied, and what are the consequences of conceiving of human or textual bodies as "legible"? Who or what gets to establish the limits of these bodies? How are they able to transform or be transformed?
