Disagreement: Comparative Literature Graduate Student Conference at New York University March 5-6, 2010

updated: 
Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 2:54pm
New York University Department of Comparative Literature

Can we disagree? The question forces you to answer 'yes' or 'no,' to commit to one path or the other. Perhaps it even forces you to choose your allies, to prepare for combat.

If we can disagree, how do we do this? Why the desire to disagree in the first place? This questioning asks us to examine the epistemological and material conditions of disagreement; the possibility of dialogue and understanding; the relationship between eristic and dialectic; the role and function of polemos; and the relation between negation, negativity, difference and disagreement.

[UPDATE] Contemporary Horror Fiction

updated: 
Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 2:21pm
University of Westminster (June 18th and 19th 2010)

Keynote Speaker: Professor David Punter (Bristol University)

Throughout the twentieth and beginnings of the twenty first century the popularity of horror fiction has remained a constant, its resilience and adaptability enabling it to survive in the face of a succession of tumultuous aesthetic movements such as Modernism, Post-Modernism and Post-colonialism. Part of this success seems to lie in the liminality of the form, with many critics being unable to evaluate whether its merits lie closer to the more respected area of nineteenth century Gothic or the trashy sensationalism of pulp literature.

[UPDATE] Bridges and Borders Graduate/Undergraduate Conference

updated: 
Friday, December 4, 2009 - 12:39pm
English Graduate Advancement and Development Society at The University of Texas at Brownsville

The English Graduate Advancement and Development Society (EGADS!) at the University of Texas at Brownsville will host its annual graduate/undergraduate English studies conference on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010. This year's topic is "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."
Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.

[UPDATE] Poetry, Politics, and Pictures in the Nineteenth Century

updated: 
Friday, December 4, 2009 - 6:34am
Poetry Politics and Pictures in the Nineteenth Century, at the University of Sheffield

From 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' to 'The White Man's Burden', from Honoré Daumier's lithographs to the Chartist poetry of the Northern Star, the politics of the nineteenth century both shaped and were shaped by poetry and images.

This interdisciplinary conference at the University of Sheffield will address such questions as: how do the images and poetry of the nineteenth century reflect or challenge British and European politics of their day? How do nineteenth-century politics intersect with aesthetics to create new theories and practices of art? What kind of correlation might there be between political representation and the representation of politics in word and image?

updated: 
Thursday, December 3, 2009 - 6:03pm
Patrick F. Durgin / School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Long discredited as an evaluative criterion, intentionality continues to be explored as a critical value, especially in avant-garde poetics from mid-20th century. Papers looking toward a poetics of critical values that includes intention, distinctions between "desire" or "motivation" and intention as theoretical constructs, and various attempts to circumvent intention in praxis welcomed for this special session proposal for the Modern Language Association's 126th annual convention in 2011, to be held in Los Angeles.
