Literature: Its Pain, Its Pleasure – EGADS! February 2011 Graduate/Undergraduate Conference

English Graduate Advancement and Development Society

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, 2010, at the University of Texas at Brownsville: www.utb.edu.

Early Modern Migrations: Exiles, Expulsion, & Religious Refugees 1400-1700 — April 19-21, 2012

Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, Victoria College – University of Toronto, Canada

The early modern period witnessed a dramatic increase in the migration, expulsion and exile of social groups and individuals around the globe. The physical movements of religious refugees triggered widespread, ongoing migrations that shaped both the contours of European colonialist expansion and the construction of regional, national and religious identities. Human movements (both real and imagined) also animated material culture; the presence of bodies, buildings, texts, songs and relics shaped and reshaped the host societies into which immigrants entered.

Anthology: Graduate Student Essays on Creative Writing Pedagogy

Chris Drew, Joseph Rein, David Yost/University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

We are currently seeking additional chapters for Dispatches from the Classroom, an anthology composed by current or recent graduate students, containing essays linking the theoretical foundations of creative writing pedagogy with practical classroom application. Accordingly, we seek papers from current or recent creative writing graduate students discussing pedagogical practices for poetry, creative nonfiction or drama. The essay may incorporate multiple genres, but the primary focus should be on one of these three. Pieces focusing exclusively on fiction will not be considered.

"Imaginary Geographies"

February 17th & 18th, 2011

How is it that the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa have emerged as separate geographical regions (separate from each other, and from other regions) in "our" imagination? How does this mapping serve the ends and guide the workings of academic and political institutions? How is it contested? What is its history, and what is the history of its alternatives?

ACLA Seminar: The Alien Topography of Ancient Rome in Postwar Film

updated: 
Monday, October 25, 2010 - 10:38am
American Comparative Literature Association Seminar, 31 March-3 April 2011, Vancouver BC [Deadline November 12]

The legends and history of Greco-Roman antiquity have enjoyed a revival in cinema and television (300, Troy, Gladiator, Rome, Spartacus), and scholars have approached such works using the analytical tools of both classics and film studies. We suggest, however, that this interdisciplinary dialogue is due for development beyond film adaptation into a greater examination of film's use of ancient Rome's alien topography.

This issue of The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies seeks to explore the political, social, and cultural significations of "evil" (and its corollary: the "good") via a critical analysis of the fluid, mutable figure of the "villain."
