[UPDATE] Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline (MadLit) – Proposals by 12/18/15; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

updated: 
Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - 6:37pm
UW-Madison MadLit Graduate Student Conference

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.

Folk and Indigenous Religions in American Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - 4:11pm
American Religion and Literature Society

The American Religion and Literature Society, affiliated with the American Literature Association, invites papers exploring how folk and indigenous religious traditions serve to unsettle or redefine conventional assumptions about religion's engagement with literature, about the secularity of American literature, or about the way literary scholarship traditionally delineates disciplinary boundaries between American literature and world literature. We welcome studies pertaining to all indigenous and folk religious traditions, broadly defined, and from all theoretical perspectives.

Please submit a 500-word abstract by January 4, 2016 to Ray Horton at rlh137@case.edu. Electronic submissions only.

Poetics and Poetry of Advertising (April 15 - 16 2016, Frankfurt)

Institute of English and American Studies, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany

"Words cannot do justice to the pleasures of a good bookshop. Ironically." This is one of several slogans on billboards and in-store posters in a current national branding campaign for Waterstones. It brings together if not strange then certainly estranged bedfellows: literature and advertising. The conference Poetics and Poetry of Advertising seeks to explore the complex, and often contradictory, relationship between their worlds and art forms.
