Making Books, Shaping Readers

The First International Making Books, Shaping Readers Conference
University College, Cork, April 18th - 20th 2007
http://www.ucc.ie/en/mbsr

Theme: "Making an Audience"

This conference encourages a broad interpretation of the notion of an
audience in keeping with the etymology of the word. (The term audience,
which derives from the Latin audenita, "a hearing, listening", from awis,
"to perceive physically, to grasp", and from the nineteenth century
transformation of the sense of the word to "readers of a book", reflects the
way in which technologies of the word have changed throughout history, from
oral, to manuscript, to print).

Panel Title: The End of Tolerance?

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007 Baltimore, Maryland

As the new century began, 'tolerance' was supposed to pour healing oil on
American waters and enable some ground for a universal moral commitment. In
Europe, it was believed that the emergence of the European Union and the
"European Dream" would enable a culture of tolerance and a kindly
integration of The Other.
