Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

Sitting with Discomfort and Bending Decolonial Mastery: The Affective and Transformative Possibilities of The LiteraryOrganized by Miriam Sbih and Flora Roussel Recent studies and pedagogical practices concerning the teaching of socially, politically, and emotionally difficult concepts (racism, colonialism, and sexism to name but a few) increasingly foster and deeply reflect on the implications of a vulnerable posture within the learners (Brantmeier; 2013). While these educational experiences can lead to emotional and physical discomfort for the person who confronts them, a vulnerable perspective allows us to overcome this initial discomfort and take advantage of it.

associated with creativity and the ability to conceive and envision ideas, images,
visions, societies and sensations in ways that transcend reason, and reach beyond
reality. It is a force that ongoingly wrestles with the constitution of reality, and is
credited for having shaped the world as we know it through the cumulative work of
writers, artists, scientists and philosophers. Imagination, hence, produces, creates a
higher reality that becomes the new reality. It is a synthesizing force that oscillates
