School of English and Drama - Queen Mary, University of London

This one-day symposium hosted by the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary, University of London aims to bring together postgraduates and academics to explore how the issues of feminism, influence and inheritance animate or problematize their work and practice in the field of literary study. Through this conference we aim to begin a discussion about the challenges and anxieties, but also the significant rewards of engaging with our substantial feminist inheritance as scholars working in English Studies today. It will seek to consider how contemporary research relates to the rich, complex and extensive history of feminist research in the discipline and explore how new directions in literary study might be informed by the work of the past.

The late 1990s saw the emergence of e-Learning. Many schools and institutions have embarked on campus-wide initiatives that comprised content-driven and technology-enhanced pedagogy until the advent of Web 2.0. Now, however, the educational model is undergoing a complete change of approach and both the blended learning model and participative learning have become more possible and meaningful, especially when combined with the changing profile of Gen Y students.

New Canadian Modernisms: Beyond Centre and Edge
Brian Trehearne notes in The Montreal Forties that "the placement of Canadian writing against the backdrop of international modernism is very rare." Situating Canadian modernism in relationship to its international contexts has been discouraged by the centre-periphery model that long dominated modernist studies, one that places Canada "@ the edge," far from the Anglo-American centre. As Susan Stanford Friedman notes, this model assumes that modernist aesthetic and cultural innovations are "first produced in the great culture capitals of Europe and the United States and then exported to…colonies and postcolonial nations … where they exist in diluted and imitative form as 'trickle down' effects."

[UPDATE] DEADLINE EXTENDED -- "alt/" Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference (March 16-17, 2013; abstracts due 1/15/13)

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.
