Radford University, March 1997

      





     Call for Papers from Graduate Students in all Disciplines
 
                       Culture and the Literary
 
       Annual Graduate English Conference at Radford University
 
                       Saturday, March 22, 1997
 
 
 
What is the nature of the constant interactions between culture and the
literary?  How can academic disciplines engage the literary and still be
mindful of culture?  Through what processes have connections been made in
the past between culture and the literary?  How might we forge new
correspondences between textual criticism and theories of culture? 
 
Papers are invited from all literary genres and periods.  We especially
invite submissions of essays which engage in current theories of gender,
nationhood, and popular and material culture.  Cross-disciplinary papers
may involve the fields of Philosophy, Communications, History, Sociology,
Biology, and Anthropology; other areas and perspectives are welcomed. 
Panels with representatives from diverse disciplines are strongly
encouraged to submit. 
 
Inexpensive accomodations available for out-of-town graduate students. 
Registration fee of $20 includes a brown-bag lunch. 
 
Panel proposals and individual abstracts are due by November 22, 1996.
