THE TWELFTH ANNUAL RED RIVER CONFERENCE ON WORLD LITERATURE

NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY

NARRATIVES OF
TRANSGRESSION AND TRESPASS

April 17-19, 2009

The Red River Conference on World Literature has a tradition of high-
quality papers informed by contemporary literary theory and criticism and
we welcome voices from across the globe. We invite papers and panel
proposals on topics that investigate any of the following topics. While we
are particularly interested in proposals that focus on the conference
theme, papers and panels on all aspects of world literature will be
considered. Possible topics include, but are not limited to processes in
which transgressions and trespasses reveal limits/barriers/boundaries,
sometimes breaking open spaces that yield transformation, as in the
following:

- mystery

- detective and espionage

- postcolonial, postmodern and global readings of trespass

- cultural and territorial transgressions

- comic transgression

- carnivalesque/grotesque

 
-theories of transgressions / trespass

- textual/corporal violations

- treason and translation

- monsters and misfits

- censorship, inquisition and policing

- transgressions of gender, social class and ethnicity

- teaching transgressions in world literature
 

Individual presenters should submit a 250-word abstract; include your
name, professional title, complete mailing address, and e-mail address.
Proposals for panels must include an abstract for each presenter, as well
as names, professional titles, addresses, and e-mail addresses of all
participants. Abstracts submitted as e-mail attachments in Word or Word
Perfect are preferred but hard copies will also be accepted. Additional
