Texts, Translations, and Traditions
April 27-29, 2006 at the University of Madison, Wisconsin

MADLIT is pleased to announce its second annual graduate student
conference which seeks to bring together graduate students from
across the country as a community to share work, ideas, and insights
into professionalization. This year's theme invites a wide range of
papers from various literary periods that engage with some aspect of
texts, translations, and traditions. Some possible topics include:

Transformation
Movement
Adaptations
New Traditions
Breaking tradition/Rebellion
Dialogues
Editing
Polyvocality
Textual Politics
Generic Traditions
Editing
Translation as Metaphor

Historical, theoretical, formalist, rhetorical, and pollitical/
cultural methodologies are welcome, and papers focusing on medieval,
Renaissance, modern American, and compoistion/rhetoric are especially
encouraged.

In accordance with our goal of professionalizing graduate students,
we also encourage faculty proposals for panels on any aspect of
graduate student professionalization including how to prepare a
dissertation, publishing the dissertation, converting seminar papers
into articles, lectureing, teaching, and so on.

This year's feature speaker is Professor Mary Ann O'Farrell (Texas A&M)
