Reading Identity: Binaries and Boundaries
Saturday February 4th, 2012

Proposal deadline: Tuesday November 15, 2011
Please submit proposals to

Grant MacEwan University is pleased to invite undergraduate students to submit proposals for our second annual Reading Identity English Undergraduate Conference. The focus of the conference is identity with an emphasis on binaries and boundaries. The theme of binaries and boundaries is intentionally broad in order to encompass and encourage a wide variety of potential topics concerning genres, historical periods, and theoretical perspectives. Under the umbrella of identity, possible paper topics can include but are not limited to the following:

• Gender
• Race
• Culture
• Sexuality
• Religion
• Social class
• Individuality
• Narrative voice
• Pop culture
• Media
• Political ideologies
• Socio-economic structures
• Genre
• Nationality
• Canadian identity
• Rewritings and adaptations

Proposals should consist of two pages. The first page should include your name, title of paper, university affiliation, mailing address, email address, and phone number. The second page should contain a 250-word proposal outlining your presentation topic and thesis. Your proposal should indicate how your paper will incorporate the conference theme. Please do not include any identifying information on the second page of the proposal as to eliminate the possibility of bias in selection.

Presentations should be within 15 to 20 minutes long (approximately 8 doubled-spaced pages).
Proposal deadline: Tuesday November 15, 2011
Please submit proposals to
The committee will notify those selected by December 5, 2011
