Crossroads VII: Comparative Indigeneities

updated: 
Tuesday, January 23, 2024 - 1:45pm
University of Massachusetts Amherst
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 9, 2024

In the seventh edition of the Crossroads Graduate Student Conference in Comparative Literature, we aim to foreground indigeneity as a key theoretical framework for investigating and challenging systems of oppression and as an invaluable component of studies in literature, film, and other media. Indigeneity unsettles colonial mechanisms and intervenes in such contentious discourses as subjectivity, domination, and environmental collapse. By looking at indigeneities comparatively, the conference seeks to underline the intrinsic pluralism and inclusivity of such modes of thinking, to consider indigeneity as a series of non-systems rather than a monolith, and to bring to the forefront the possibility of vibrant solidarity.

Unruly Borders 

“Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary. It is in a constant state of transition. The prohibited and forbidden are its inhabitants.” Gloria E. Anzaldúa, Borderlands/La Frontera 

The English Graduate Students Association of the University of Ottawa is excited to review your submissions for our 2024 Conference

Conference: March 15-16, 2024

Call for Academic and Creative Proposals:

“Conflict is not another word for crisis or for war or for competition. Conflict is a condition of intellectual life, and, I believe, its pleasure. Firing up the mind to engage itself is precisely what the mind is for—it has no other purpose. Just as the body is always struggling to repair itself from its own abuse, to stay alive, so is the mind craving knowledge. When it is not busy trying to know, it is in disrepair.”

- Toni Morrison, “Grendel and His Mother”

In Literature and Evil, Bataille argues for a close connection between literature and "Evil" as a sovereign and productive value, which is defined against an oppressive use of reason that "flattens" all knowledge into a reductive uniformity. Bataille finds in Blake's A Marriage of Heaven and Hell "agitations", "poetic violence" and "lacerations" that occur in Blake’s drive towards human totality and death. At the same time, Bataille observes that this violence and Evil also "raise us to glory" in Blake's attribution to Evil of "the wisdom of Hell that heralds
