We invite you to consider the idea of survival in literary, interdisciplinary and theoretical contexts. We welcome conceptions of survival in diverse modes: the future of the work of art after canonicity; the ethics of testimony and witness; the precarity of the environment; the fatal effects of heteronormativity; the inheritance of cultural histories through interpretations, translations and archives; the experiences of globalization, displacement, and conflict.
The conference will be held at the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto from March 12th to March 15th 2015.
Its panels have typically been multidisciplinary, multilingual and international. Our keynote speakers this year will be Christopher Fynsk (University of Aberdeen), Elizabeth Rottenberg (DePaul University), and Eric Cazdyn (University of Toronto). The conference is typically attended by area graduate students, faculty members and curious members of the community.
We invite joint proposals for panels/roundtables as well as proposals for individual talks. Proposals should be a maximum of 250 words. Please submit them via our website.
