Endnotes, The University of British Columbia English Graduate Conference

Located at the edge of Vancouver’s city limits, the University of British Columbia is perched on the edge of an ocean. Down an interminable set of winding stairs is Wreck Beach, and with a few more steps you are submerged in the saltwater of the sea. As a West Coast school, the possibility of submersion is always waiting at our door. What does this mean in a time of climate catastrophe and imminent sea level rise? How do we navigate relationships to the ocean, to submersion, and drowning in these chaotic times?  Submersion evokes the existence of multiple, nuanced truths and interpretations.

BETWEEN THE WAVES: BRITISH WOMEN WRITERS 1930 TO 1960 REDUX

Fourth international conference at The University of Hull Friday 12thJune 2020

This conference aims to rekindle the energy unleashed at the inaugural conference on British Women’s Writing 1930 to 1960: Revision, Revival, Rediscovery in 2016 at Hull University that was taken forward in conferences at Chichester University in 2017 and 2018. The fourth conference seeks to gather more research and discussion from scholars of women’s literature of this period and to continue the re-evaluation of women’s writing occupying a liminal place in ‘the canon’ of British literature as taught by the academy.

Thresholds, Borders and Boundaries

updated: 
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 3:35am
The Acacia Group at California State University, Fullerton
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

A threshold marks the end of one space and the beginning of another. Therefore, we may conceptualize a threshold as either a border or an entrance. Borders need not be physical or geographic: they may be ideological, linguistic, economic, psychological, or identified by another theoretical approach. For example, we may consider physical borders between countries or the boundaries between texts, identities, or communities. Boundaries may be immobile and limiting, or they may be transgressed and manipulated; for that reason, a threshold is a paradoxical space where meanings connect or collide. We may examine thresholds within textual content, or outside of the text with regard to literary response and interpretation (e.g.

Crossing Boundaries in Literature, Theory, and Culture

updated: 
Friday, January 17, 2020 - 12:08pm
Purdue University Literature, Theory, and Culture Graduate Program
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 24, 2020

Graduate students in the Literature, Theory, and Cultural Studies program at Purdue University invite participation in their first annual symposium, “Crossing Boundaries in Literature, Theory, and Culture.” Boundaries represent real or imagined limits within various cultures, and negotiation of these boundaries enables innovation, transgression, as well as social, ethical, or political implications. Literature and other cultural artifacts work to challenge, straddle, or even reinforce boundaries, from national borders to the artificial limits scholars construct between time periods or fields of study. This symposium will investigate and encourage boundary crossings in literature, culture, and language in the broadest sense.
