The Organization of Graduate Students in Comparative Literature (OGSCL) is

extraordinary outcomes of cultural encounters, national and ideological
borders, disciplines in interaction, the overlapping of distinct historical
periods, the interweaving of literary genres, the symbiosis between
academics and social change, and the foreplays between rhetorics of war,
freedom, memory, and silence.
Graduate students at any stage are welcome to participate. Your research
can be presented in the form of a paper, a research proposal, thesis and
dissertations chapters, or an outline. In addition, undergraduates from the
five-college consortium are encouraged to participate as well.

conference to umasscrossroads_at_gmail.com Abstracts must be received by May
