UNLIMITED: Duke English Graduate Conference


Joseph Albernaz

the first Graduate Student Conference hosted by the English Department, which will take place on February 16 and 17! Friday will be in Allen 314 and Saturday will be in Classroom Building 106; both days will run from 10 to about 4. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The theme for the conference is limits, and we have a stellar lineup of scholars, both from Duke and our peer institutions across the country, whose papers will address this theme from many theoretical, generic, historical, and linguistic angles. Additionally, on Friday afternoon, Joseph Albernaz (Columbia) will present the keynote lecture, titled "Line, Lineament, Limit," and on Saturday afternoon, we will hold a group seminar discussing Maurice Blanchot's "The Limit Experience" and Denise Ferreira da Silva's "To Be Announced: Radical Praxis or Knowing (at) the Limits of Justice" (Can be found in the linked Box folder). We hope for this event to be both intellectually and communally stimulating-and, just as importantly, we hope to see you in attendance! Please see the attached poster and schedule draft for more details about locations and times.
