- PASSAGES -

The 4th Annual English Graduate Student Association Conference
Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: December 31st, 2014

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.
