UPDATE: Resistance to Tyranny: Representing the Struggle for Human Rights (3/10/06; NYCEA, 4/28/06-4/29/06)

New due date:

            In an interview with Amnesty International , Chilean writer and activist Ariel Dorfman explains
            that, despite efforts to silence survivors of human rights violations, "Somehow the stories do come
            out, those voices do come out. I am not their voice: I make a space for those voices, a bridge."
            Dorfman's insights raise questions about the role of literature in the struggle for human rights.
             How do writers represent often unspeakable crimes against humanity and create a cultural memory that
            recognizes the forgotten or marginalized voices from the past? What does it mean to bear witness
            through literature?

CFP: Visual Studies (grad) (3/15/06; 4/22/06)

The Seventh Annual Graduate English Conference
Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven, CT

I'm seeking papers from graduate students that examine mythologization in comics. Which myths, legends and folktales have been retold? Where do these retellings remain faithful and how do they depart from the original stories? What does this suggest about motifs and topologies? These and other similar questions are the focus of the Visual Studies panel.
