UPDATE: 7th Annual UNC-Charlotte English Graduate Student Conference (12/15/06; 1/19/07)
Seventh Annual EGSA Conference
"Strike Through the Mask!"
The English Graduate Student Association at UNC Charlotte invites you
to attend the 7th annual Graduate Student Conference to be held on
Friday, January 19, 2007. All disciplines are encouraged to submit
abstracts and attend the conference.
Organized around the concept of the mask, the seventh annual English
Graduate Student Association conference at UNC Charlotte seeks
abstracts for presentations that consider the implications of masked
agency in literature, language, film, theatre and pedagogy. This theme
is meant to be construed broadly: we welcome studies that explore the
masks that construct what readers know of authors, narrators, and
characters; how techniques of concealment operate within literature;
how literature can be thought of as a mask for the many authorial,
cultural and philosophical forces that can be discerned beneath its
surface and how various sorts of masks operate in rhetoric and
Presentations will be 15 minutes in length, followed by a discussion
period. Please identify any special audiovisual needs with your
abstract. The keynote speaker will be announced shortly, and the
conference will end with a food and wine reception.
For more information, contact us using the information below.
Please submit 150-300 word abstracts to egsa_at_email.uncc.edu in the
body of the e-mail or as a Microsoft Word attachment by December 1,
2006. Please put "EGSA Conference" in the subject line of the e-mail.
