Echoes: Across Disciplines, Texts, and Times
When an echo sounds, be it spoken, written, or acted, the repeated content takes on a new character. The Echoes Graduate Student Conference at Duquesne University seeks to engage academic communities in polyvocal dialogues, exploring echoes as they appear across disciplines, texts, and times.
The Duquesne University English Graduate Organization welcomes proposals of academic papers from the humanities, arts, and sciences, as well as submissions of creative work. Our aim is to establish a space of intellectual inquiry in which scholars can explore the phenomenon of echoes as they reach across disciplines, genres, genders, religions, cultures, places, time periods, races, and classes.
Possible questions include, but are not limited to:
* How are echoes embodied and performed across the boundaries of gender, race, and class?
The keynote speaker will be Professor Linda Kinnahan, author of Lyric Interventions: Feminism, Experimental Poetry, and Contemporary Discourse and Poetics of the Feminine: Literary Tradition and Authority in William Carlos Williams, Mina Loy, Denise Levertov, and Kathleen Fraser.
Submissions must be received by November 30, 2010 and should include the participant’s name, institutional affiliation, email, phone number, and a proposed title. For academic papers, please send a 250 word abstract; for creative submissions, please send a 250 word abstract as well as a representative sample of creative work. Please submit your abstract via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and type “Echoes Conference Submission” in the subject line of the e-mail.
