Graduate Students in English 2019 Conference

“Opening Doors:Creating Opportunities for Difficult Conversations”

March 9, 2019

Starting conversations on difficult topics can seem insurmountable at times. The 2019 GSE Conference focuses on how texts (books, tv shows, films, social media, etc.) open the door to difficult conversations, offering the opportunity for enlightenment and understanding in a time seemingly bereft of both.

Seminar: From Life to Afterlives: Creative Re-presentation in the Premodern World

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:01pm
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Organizer: Alison Frazier, University of Texas, Austin


Across the pre-modern world, biography in all media focused largely on rulers, warrior heroes, and spiritual adepts. Such figures, historical or not, were understood to embody virtues worth preserving, admiring and, on occasion, imitating. Thus, the global phenomena of afterlives: creative re-presentations that aimed to secure the posthumous life, or life-effect, of the hero. The topic of afterlives encourages pursuit of a global and comparative pre-modernity that remains generously local, conceptually and theoretically astute, and disciplinarily diverse.

“Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.”

The picture as a representation constitutes the medium/message to communicate/ establish the truth. As a fragment of memory and testimony that the Arts convey from painting to sculpture, the portrait is associated with the concepts of similarity, materiality, and presence configuring, as well, an order. From the rescue of oblivion and death to the legitimation of power, the portrait guarantees the perpetuity of the moment with its solemnity. 

Special issue “American Literary Naturalism in the World”

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:12am
CR: The New Centennial Review (Michigan State UP)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Essays are invited for a forthcoming special issue of the CR on American literary naturalism in a global context. As Christopher Hill has argued in “The Travels of Naturalism and the Challenges of a World Literary History,” the history of nineteenth-century naturalist fiction points to disorderly patterns of circulation that suggest “multiple, overlapping histories, together forming a heterogeneous history on the scale of the planet.” Using the concept of “travel” as his point of reference, Hill sees naturalism as a paradigm for thinking about transnational literary, cultural, and economic transformations.
