The Miami University Summer Institute for Literary History will host a conference May 25-27, 2000 at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.
The Institute and conference topic, "Literacies, Texts, and New World Nationalisms," will explore three important concepts that give rise to nationhood: the rise and spread of literacy, nationalism and the production of texts, and autoethnography and counter-print culture. The conference will feature presentations by Anne Ruggles Gere (The University of Michigan), Harvey J. Graff (The University of Texas, San Antonio), David D. Hall (Harvard University), and Joanne Rappaport (Georgetown University).
In conjunction with the Institute, a graduate seminar lead by Katharine Gillespie and Morris Young of Miami University will be offered May 15-June 2, 2000.
