"When I cannot see words curling like rings of smoke round me I am in darkness ­I am nothing." -Virginia Woolf, The Waves

In celebration of 50 years of graduate studies, The University of Dayton invites you to join us March 29, 2014 for a graduate conference devoted to an exploration of the space and place that words create. How does space inform our identities as writers? How do we perceive space, literally and figuratively, in literature? How does race or gender influence the space we are given, or take, in society? Where is our place in the classroom and what can we do with it?

[UPDATE] The Economies of Future Past: Redefining the Space(s) of (Post)Memory - March 13 and 14, 2014

In a world of instant news updates, Wikipedia, and Twitter, memory seems a thing of the past. This instantaneity shapes the way we consider knowledge. In recent years, the rise of digital technology and communication has generated debates around global movements and this has shaped the way the past is recuperated into historical memory. The recent turn to archival memory in both theoretical discourses and artistic practices suggests a need to develop a new set of conceptual, literary, and aesthetic tools with which to understand, interpret, and problematize notions of the past and of memory.
