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.

(Re)settlement: Making Place, Making Space

updated: 
Friday, January 10, 2020 - 9:11am
Lakehead University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020
Call for papers:
Early bird deadline January 22, 2020 (potentially eligible for funding)*  EXTENDED from original posting.  
Final deadline February 15, 2020 

Crucial to many social justice studies and critical pedagogies are the acknowledgement of settlement, place, and space. Locationality and positionality form the foundation of our worldviews and our social, cultural, and political experiences. We aim to explore the nuances and complexities of settlement, place, and space in the context of settler-colonial societies through an intersectional social justice framework, and how to challenge systems of injustice that become established through place and space.

An Interdisciplinary Exploration of/in Liminality

Graduate Students in English at the University of Arkansas
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

As graduate students we often find ourselves in the in-between spaces. No longer just students but not part of the faculty – working to professionalize but not recognized as professionals yet. Our experiences in this liminal space create the unique experience that crafts us into the scholars that we are working to become. This conference theme is focused on the concept of liminality both in scholarship and within our professional, classroom, and political spaces.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr. Chandan Reddy

Associate Professor, Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies

University of Washington

 

Race is not only about identity or skin colour. Capitalism has been racialized from its origins, and has produced a modern world system that derives economic value from the commodification of racial identities through slavery, imperialism, and genocide. Furthermore, racial capitalism has been accompanied by biopolitical technologies that regulate sexuality and enforce heteronormativity making it also a gendered process.

Exploring Alterity: Self, Identity and the Social

 

Contemporary politics is rife with questions of identity, making one implicitly familiar with notions of “alterity.” Alterity can be defined as “otherness” or “being otherwise” and at times, is used simply to mean “difference.” This conference intends to unpack varied notions of "alterity" as a conceptual category, broadly understood as "difference" or "variation" within disciplines such as Sociology, Philosophy, Linguistics, Psychology, Literature, and Economics.
