UPDATE - Literature: Its Pain, Its Pleasure

What does literature evoke in us? Can a text provoke, and can literature transform? Why do we find some texts comforting and satisfying, while others agitate and disturb us?

We invite you to explore these questions at the English Graduate Advancement and Development Society's (EGADS!) annual graduate/undergraduate English-studies conference, "Literature: Its Pain, Its Pleasure," on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011, at the conference website: http://www.egadsconference2011.org.

« Dey don't belong » : Exclusion and integration in American interwar literature. May 13th, 2011.

American society in the aftermath of WWI is distinguished by an effort to define itself resulting from a desire of emancipation from the then prevailing European model. All over the country important transformations took place with industrialization and the growing impact of capitalism or multiple immigration waves. On cultural and artistic grounds, such an incentive can be exemplified by the emergence of new forms.

Apocalypse Literature Panel, American Literature Association

Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - 12:14pm
Amanda Wicks, Louisiana State University

Apocalypse, post-apocalypse, atomic and nuclear narratives have increasingly shifted from the science fiction genre to pervade American literature as a whole. Authors such as Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo and Cormac McCarthy, among many others, consider historical or imagined catastrophes that usher in new sensibilities, while simultaneously shattering connections to the past. Traditionally, apocalypse narratives attempt to assert order and coherence where none previously existed. Does apocalypse literature still presume control over disaster? What has apocalypse literature come to signify in the U.S.? What does apocalypse literature offer? How have imagined or real endings come to be portrayed in American literature?

[Update] Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism: 28 - 29 April 2011 (Abstracts 31 December 2010)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 2:49pm
Notre Dame University, Lebanon

To celebrate the centennial of Ameen Rihani's Book of Khalid, the Department of English, Translation and Education at Notre Dame University – Lebanon, invites scholars to the Second International Conference on Lebanese-American Literary Figures, titled "Ameen Rihani's Arab-American Legacy: From Romanticism to Postmodernism." Rihani's travelogues, correspondence, poetic, and prose works, especially The Book of Khalid, testify to his deep sense of Romanticism and Modernism. His eagerness to launch a cultural, political, economic, social, and spiritual revolution, one which would question Western and Eastern traditional norms and propose new systems of thought, is an expression of his universality.

Real Worlds: (dis)Locating Realities. Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference. April 16th, 2011.

UMass Amherst English Graduate Organization

From surrealism to social networks to the "real" housewives of New Jersey, it's no secret that reality is socially constructed. "Reality"—-as a state of mind or as an embodied experience—-has historically been positioned in opposition to such realms of infinite possibility as dreams, fantasy, and imagination. In fact, far from being a state of stability and sanity, reality is often treated as that which must be escaped. But escape to what?

LitPop: Writing and Popular Music

Friday 24th June 2011, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne

Going beyond well-rehearsed comparisons between Dylan and Keats, this conference aims to bring fresh perspectives to debates about the forms and functions of popular music in relation to literature, exploring connections and conflicts between writing (fiction and non-fiction, past and present), and popular music (modern, contemporary or otherwise). Where cultural value was once sought for popular music through analogy with literature, or popular music and literary texts were seen as incompatible, writers and critics now borrow the demotic idioms of pop. Why?
