The Italian Graduate Society at Rutgers University would like to invite you to send in submissions for our bi-annual conference entitled «Devotion» which will take place on November 8th and 9th, 2013 at the Eagleton Institute of Politics, in New Brunswick, NJ.
Devotion is manifested across different disciplines and mediums, and its categories may be broken down as follows:
• Devotion to an ideal or a mission (political, social, cultural literary movement);
• Devotion to the homeland/national or regional identity;
• Devotion to love and affection (family, romantic, erotic love, friendship);
• Devotion to nature and sciences (environmental studies, sustainability, eco-criticism);
• Devotion to an icon (literary influence, homage, models, idols, work, belief, credo);
• Devotion to language and linguistic/literary style;
• Devotion to religion and spirituality
Please send a 300 word abstract and brief personal biography, in the form of an electronic attachment, to: firstname.lastname@example.org by October 10th, 2013.
