UCR (dis)junctions

Since the development of Oral-Formulaic Theory by Milman Parry and Albert Lord, the field of Oral Poetics and Oral Traditions has continued to grow and to have its ideas applied to an increasingly wide set of literatures, cultures, and traditions. This special session seeks to encourage further work in the area of Oral Traditions and Oral poetics of all kinds, especially with an eye to creative, innovative and under- or un-explored readings. Papers may look at a wide range of time periods and cultures, including, but not limited to, Classical, Old and Middle English, Eastern European and other historic Oral Traditional literatures, living/contemporary Oral Traditions, and the concept of Secondary Orality.

New Directions Graduate Student Conference
"[Dis]Embodied Disciplines: Blurring Boundaries in the Academy"
Conference Dates: April 11-12, 2014, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Deadline for Abstract Submission: January 20, 2014

The body is a site where regimes of discourse and power inscribe themselves, a nodal point or nexus for relations of juridical and productive power. And, yet, to speak in this way invariably suggests that there is a body that is in some sense there, pregiven, existentially available to become the site of its own ostensible construction.
– Judith Butler

INVESTIGATING INEQUALITIES: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ACADEMIC CONFERENCE

updated: 
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - 12:38pm
Fordham University Graduate Student Association

Inequality has marked human existence and its effects have been felt worldwide. Academics and public intellectuals have pursued the causes and effects of inequalities through academia and the public sphere. The concepts and realities of inequality have been much examined through the lenses of literature, philosophy, theology, sociology, political science, economics, and psychology. From the ancient to modern analyses of the subject, the interpretation of equality and inequality has evolved, but inequality has always been a central theme of academic discourse. This conference will explore inequality as it impels us forward in our pursuit of an end that may ultimately be unattainable.
