Call for Papers:
University of Michigan
4th Annual Graduate Student Conference in British Studies
March 21 and 22, 1997
"Britian's Geographies: Imagination, Excess, and Empire"
This conference will engage questions about the constitution and
construction of personal or collective identities through literal and
figurative "maps". How is the body both made intelligible and used as a
trope for various aspects of British thought and culture?
Revelant papers might consider the intersections of coloniatlity,
post-coloniality, national and local topographies -- territorial,
anatomical, literary, visual and otherwise -- studies in gender and
sexuality, and the body politic.
Multi-disciplinary work is therefore particularly welcome. We would
like to open a forum for lively, invigorating and supportive discussion
among graduate students working in various aspects of British Studies.
Respondents should submit a typed, double-spaced abstract of 100-200
words for a 20-minute conference paper on or before Friday, January 31,
1997. For more details, please contact:
