California State University, Dominguez Hills - English Graduate Association

This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.

Submissions do not have to adhere to the theme of writing beyond the binary and surging ahead through challenges—all topics and themes are welcome for consideration to be showcased as part of the CSUDH EGA Spring Conference on Saturday, April 23, 2022 either on campus or remotely via virtual conferencing.

To submit your proposed conference piece, please send an abstract of no more than 300 words plus a short personal bio of 100 words or less to by March 13, 2022 (deadline may be flexible).

Conference will be held Saturday, April 23, 2022, in a hybrid format both on campus at CSUDH and virtual/online.
