February 24-26, 2006

"Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to
distinguish us from them."
—Gloria Anzaldúa, Borderlands la Fronterra
Ideology blurs cultural borders, complicating notions of "us" and "them." This
is the focus of the 12th annual Southwest Graduate English Symposium. We seek
both critical and creative panel proposals and presentation abstracts from a
variety of disciplines that examine the construction and negotiation of
gendered, raced, sexualized, classed, and other marked identities and
identification(s). These identities can be individual or collective, single or
multi-layered. We are looking for submissions that use new theoretical
approaches as well as (re)considerations of dominant texts (including written,
visual, performed, etc.).
Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
Literature and the "canon" - Linguistics and languages - Rhetoric and
Composition - ESL - Philosophy - Psychology and Sociology - New History -
Pedagogy - Literacy - Religion - Feminism - Queer Theory - Transgender Studies -
Disability Studies - Performance Studies - Body Politics - Ethnic Studies -
CRT - Multi-culturalism - Post/Colonialism - Border Studies - Issues of Aging -
Film Studies - Visual Arts - The Avant-garde (theater, film, etc.) - Technology
Panel Proposals should be no more than 500 words and submitted by October 3,
Paper Abstracts should be no more than 350 words and submitted by October 17,
Please include home and office numbers, complete mailing address, e-mail
address, professional affiliation, and AV requirements with your submission.
