“Beneath the Boot Heel: Examinations of Oppression and Resistance”
The Association of English Graduate Students at North Carolina State University is pleased to announce the call for papers for our fifth annual graduate student conference in the humanities, which will be held March 21 and 22, 2014 in Raleigh, NC.
With the evolution of communication, technology, and global economic interaction in the past century, both oppression and resistance to that oppression, have seen unprecedented changes. These changes remind us of a global history rife with tyranny and inform our understanding of previous attempts to subvert those in power. For this conference, scholars are encouraged to utilize their research and particular disciplinary frameworks to address the historical and/or developmental aspects of oppression and resistance. Additionally, we welcome submissions that ask questions and make strides toward understanding how research might provide insight into the modern world.
Broad topics might include:
We welcome submissions from disciplines across the humanities: English Studies, Literature, Linguistics, Film Studies, Creative Writing, Scientific/Technical Writing, Rhetoric, Composition, Communication, Cultural Studies, History, Art History and others.
Please email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 6, 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.
