"Revolution and Rebirth in English Studies"

CFP: The UTB English Graduate Advancement and Development
Society is now accepting paper or panel proposal submissions to
its 3rd conference themed “Revolution and Rebirth in
English Studies,” which will be held at The University of Texas at
Brownsville on Saturday, March 9, 2013. The city of Brownsville
is found on the southernmost tip of Texas, a short 30-minute drive
from the beautiful South Padre Island beach.

EGADS! is accepting proposals fitting to the theme in all areas
of English studies including but not limited to:

 British, American, and Other Literatures in English
 Literary and Critical Theory
 Language and Linguistics
 Pedagogy
 Composition and Rhetoric
 Popular Culture
 Poetry, Creative Fiction, and Non Fiction
 Science Fiction and Fantasy
 Special Topics

Our vision is to explore "who we were, who we are, and who we will be." This can range from literature emerging at the "birth" of English culture to the socio-historical upheavals across the centuries to the future of English studies ... revolution and rebirth encompass past, present, and what's coming.

Deadline for proposals: Saturday, December 15, 2012
Submissions open: Friday, October 12, 2012

Please submit all proposals to egadsconference@gmail.com.
