Meeting Description:

10th Annual WSU Grad Forum Graduate Student Conference
Theme: The Spring of Our Discontent: Renewing, Recycling, and Re-assembling
Department of Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Wayne State University
Conference Date: Saturday, April 7, 2012

>From Rachel Carson's Silent Spring to the Arab Spring, our world is confronted by multiple environmental, political, social, and cultural crises. How do crises drive us to demand change and rethink our choices? How does crisis compel us to re-imagine ourselves? How might literature, arts, scholarship and media shape or drive protest? How do traditional understandings of gender and other social roles change? What stories do we tell ourselves about our cultures and their crises? Do we strive to radically break with the past and invent new forms? Do we recycle or renew what is already there? This conference seeks to examine the roles of literature, language and culture in responding to local and global crises.
