Call for Abstracts: "Wild Things: Animals and the Animalistic in Literature, Film and Art" - The second annual graduate conference hosted by the Comparative Literature Department at the University of Georgia.
Abstract Deadline: Monday, May 3, 2010
Conference Date: Saturday, November 13, 2010
Conference Website: https://sites.google.com/site/wildthingsatuga/
How does animal representation differ between various literatures, mythologies, arts and cultures? Why does the animalistic have an enduring fascination across the ages? How is the wild, the feral and/or the instinctual used or manipulated in narrative? How might it be productive to address animals or the animalistic within the context of modern society?
These are some of the questions that will be posed at the second annual conference organized by Comparative Literature graduate students at the University of Georgia. We are currently considering all abstracts having to do with the broader topic of animals and the animalistic and invite graduate students and faculty from all institutions to submit their proposals of 300 words or less.
