>While we expect that a number of conference participants will present
>papers that focus on current literary production, as our theme
>suggests, we encourage submission from those whose interests lie
>outside the contemporary.  Our goal in hosting this conference is to
>gather a number of distinct voices representative of different
>genres, literary movements, historical periods, theories, and authors
>=96 with one common thread: an attempt to connect seemingly disparate
>interests to the conference theme.  We hope this stretch of past to
>present, and present to future, will tell us something integral not
>only about the current state of literature and literary criticism =96
>but also about what it means to be human in the 21st century.

>Our conference theme, then, can be interpreted in one of two ways:
>that the literature of the present is understood through -- and
>influenced by -- a knowledge of the literature of the past, and/or
>that the literature of the present provides new epistemological
>girding that will in turn inform future literary endeavor.  We
>suggest, then, that entrance into the 21st century heralds a
>transitional moment in the literary arts.  If so, where might we
>begin to locate the roots of literature in the 21st century?  Is it
>grounded in the present or in the past?  And where does its future lie?
