Masks and Masking (Hybrid Conference)

updated: 
Thursday, February 8, 2024 - 2:49pm
IUP English Graduate Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

Masks have been used throughout history for many different purposes. Some use literal masks for entertainment and performance; some use them for cunning and disguise; others use figurative masks to hide their true identities from those around them. As we consider trends—and shifts in those trends—in literature, theory, criticism, and academia, we must analyze the utility of masks to determine why people have needed them and still need them.

 

IUP’s English Graduate Organization is proud to announce the 2024 EGO Spring Conference with the theme: Masks and Masking. For this conference, we will be utilizing the hybrid format (both in-person and via Zoom) to accommodate everyone and encourage those from outside of IUP to join us as well.

Of the six official actors to have portrayed James Bond, Timothy Dalton is perhaps the least discussed. While Timothy Dalton’s tenure as 007 has often been overlooked by scholars, his two films have recently received critical reappraisal by both fans and critics. As such, The Living Daylights (1987) and License to Kill (1989) occupy an integral place within Bond canon and are now considered beloved by many fans.

We are seeking speakers to fill up a panel at the APL Conference “Borders/Freedom/Civility” at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, June 12-15, 2024, on the question of how science fiction aesthetics, the experience of science fiction, and the experience of otherness in science fiction relate. Science Fiction is one of the foremost genres exploring the relation between the alien other as a way of thinking through interhuman relations across borders, but, as a liminally “high” literary form, it is often excluded from discussions of the aesthetic experience of literature as a driving force of intellectual engagement.
