Providence was wonderful; Brown is such a lovely campus! Michael Graziano and I had a fantastic time with our panelists and are overjoyed with how well the papers interacted with one another. The ACLA holds its place as my favorite conference. I love what they did with the program guide’s cover!

 

My paper, “Flipping Goan Atom: Binding and Idolatry in Bergvall and Cixous,” touched on many of the same things discussed in my forthcoming Angelaki article on Cixous and Bergvall and worked to better-develop my final dissertation chapter. The discussion on trauma that unfolded on my day–moving from papers on 9/11 to my discussion of trauma in binding was so rich. Here is how we arranged our papers across the three-day event:

And finally, just a glimpse at the historic campus (the beautiful woodwork!) and the delicious seafood that Providence has to offer!

 

 

 

I am already planning my panel for next year’s meeting in Toronto!

Here is a look at the breakdown:

 

 

I had a fantastic time at Harvard and definitely fell in love with Boston!

First major conference! The ACLA was such a great place to have my first big conference experience. The three-day structure  is the perfect foundation for discussion. The theme for that year’s conference was “Arrivals and Departures” and the panel I presented  on was “Passing and Passing Through: Identity, The Body, and Other Sites of Performance,” organized by Christina Dahl and Lisa Patti of Cornell. Here is the breakdown:
