deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 5, 2020

Calling all Gunters! The past few years have seen a growing number of scholarly interventions on Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One (2011), exploring topics that range from his portrayal of dys/utopias (see Nordstrom, Ue) to his use of Pac-Man as a metaphor (Ue and Munday), and from Cline’s treatment of masculinity (Condis) to his invocation of Arthurian romance (Aronstein and Thompson). In 2018, the novel was adapted into a critically and commercially successful hit, earning an Academy Award nomination.

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Friday, January 24, 2020

Cornell EGSO 2020 Conference: ProximityMarch 6th - 7th, 2020Call for Proposals:

As knowledge travels through time and space, proximity emerges as an increasingly important category for critical inquiry. How does our understanding of proximity change our intellectual landscape? What issues seem distant from us? Which objects, texts, or historical moments feel more proximate in the present? How does the idea of proximity shape our understanding of political, economic, ecological, and social issues? Whether addressing the position of the humanities with regard to geopolitical conflicts or the ways in which history becomes entangled with the present, matters of closeness and distance must be considered urgent intellectual problems.
