Second speaker, TBA

Innovative critical approaches sensitive to the body constantly reveal it
as an occluded term at the center of many of our cultural, ethical, and
aesthetic discourses. Our constructions of race, economy, law, desire,
nationhood, textuality, and even language itself owe more to the body
than their surfaces may readily acknowledge.

University at Albany EGSO

The University at Albany English Graduate Student Organization invites papers for its annual
conference. This year’s conference will explore the intersections of literature and science of the
human body in Western culture. Throughout much of history, the body has been a priority for
writers of philosophy, science, and literature. Indeed, prior to modernity, inquiry about the body
was a vital part of philosophy in its broadest sense. From prolific thinkers as varied as
Hippocrates and Judith Butler, Jonathan Edwards and Marquis de Sade, Foucault and Luce
Irigaray, the body and its behavior have generated a sprawling discourse in the humanities which

Abstract Deadline: January 18, 2007

Salman Rushdie once wrote, “human beings do not perceive things whole; we are not gods but
wounded creatures, cracked lenses, capable only of fractured perceptions.” In this
interdisciplinary conference, we invite original works that explore the way we construct meaning
out of historical, theoretical, and literary works.

After Naipaul: from India to the Americas, a new Caribbean writing

        V.S Naipaul, British writer born in Trinidad in 1932, is
undoubtedly the most famous indo-Caribbean author. Winner of the Nobel
Prize in 2001, his novels and essays have known a great success. His
pessimistic and strong fiction and essays are representative of the
writing of exile and denounce the bad effect of colonialism, and the
brutal encounters of cultures.
