For this year’s conference we will consider conjointly the themes of
translations and transgressions. We invite papers or panels on
literature, language, cultural studies, composition, and pedagogy that
contemplate these themes both within the discipline of English and in
other areas of the humanities. We encourage interdisciplinary papers and
panels. Proposals may broadly interpret the conference themes along (but
not confined to) the following lines:

• Speaking in Tongues: Bilingualism in the Classroom
• Ethnicity and Transgression
• Breaking all the Rules: A Return to Grammar?
• Forbidden Fruit and Original Sins
• Vernaculars and Idioms
• The Translator as Traitor
• Translating Gender
• Social Contracts and Cultural Transgressions
• Metamorphoses (Ovidian and otherwise)
• Cybertranslations
