18th Annual Tufts University English Graduate Organization Conference
Friday, October 20, 2006

ON DIFFICULTY

Keynote Speaker: Lisa Lowe
Professor of Comparative Literature University of California, San Diego

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Difficulty both privileges and excludes. As scholars, critics,
students, and educators, we struggle with difficulty and we flirt with
it. We revel in it and we strive to master it. At crucial times, we
even resist it. While difficult language and concepts can elevate a
conversation or expand a critical discourse, difficulty also erects
barriers and creates lines of division that are both literal and
experiential.

Every year between Christmas and New Year's, English professors and
graduate students, book editors and publishers and representatives, and
occasionally spouses gather in a major American or Canadian city to
meet, interview each other, present papers, and party. In this panel,
"A Carnival of Sorts: Power, Fear, and Play at the Modern Language
Association Annual Convention," we will explore the ongoing carnival
that
the convention invariably becomes from personal and scholarly
perspectives.
In particular, the panel hopes to provide a semiotic, sociological, and
anthropological analysis of one of the academia's most peculiar
events.
