CFP: Graduate Student Forum, SAMLA 2006: New Spaces of Subjectivity

(This looks tailor made for a presentation on how blogging provides new opportunities/possibilities for subtivity/ies)

Graduate Student Forum, SAMLA '06 (Charlotte, NC; Nov. 10-11, 2006).

New Spaces of Subjectivity

This panel will address how space affects the formation of subjectivity; specifically, papers may consider how the borders and spaces within which it is possible to become a subject have expanded or shifted due to recent developments in areas such as technology, community, literature, gender theory, etc. Possible topics might include: How has (or perhaps simply, has) the “space” of subjectivity changed? What does this change look like in theory, literature, or practice? How have these changes redefined the process of becoming a “subject,” and who can undertake that process? Do changes to the boundaries and spaces of subjectivity affect how writers or theorists, individuals or communities, go about claiming subjectivity for themselves? This panel welcomes and will consider papers from graduate students in all disciplines.

The deadline for paper proposals is April 1, 2006.
Please send proposals of 250 words or less to:
