"I Live Here!: Redefining and Negotiating Notions of Public and Private"

Extended Deadline: December 1, 2012

Conference Dates: Feb 22-23, 2013

The Association of English Graduate Students at North Carolina State University would like to announce an extension of the deadline for abstracts from Nov 15 to December 1, 2012.

Scholars are encouraged to explore how their own research and interests in English & Humanities makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the public versus private distinction, be it in its current iteration, the historical development, or a diachronic snapshot of another cultural moment. We welcome submissions that examine or critique this binary, but also investigate the ways that private identities affect public discourse and vice versa.

We welcome submissions from disciplines across the humanities: English Studies, Literature, Linguistics, Film Studies, Creative Writing, Scientific/Technical Writing, Rhetoric, Composition, Communication, Cultural Studies, and others.

DIRECTIONS: Email your submissions to aegs.conference@gmail.com no later than December 1, 2012. Abstracts should be approximately 300 words. Include your name, institution, and course of study in the body of your email. Please remove all identifying markers on the abstract itself. We will send confirmations upon the receipt of your proposal.
