Another Way In:
the unseen Influences that change our worlds.

Boston College's graduate community will host a biannual literary conference on Saturday, March 31, 2007 at Boston College's Yawkey Center. This conference builds upon our traditional Colloquium sessions by expanding outward to take advantage of the rich individual and institutional scholarship in the Northeastern U.S. We are looking for papers that touch upon our conference topic, a closer look at unseen influences whose movements across time, space, or community bring change. From viruses, carriers, and contaminants to inspiration and sublimation, these are the intangible forces we invite or dread. We invite you to interpret the topic broadly, but some topics might include:
