On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email

6th Annual Graduate English Organization Conference

When: Friday, April 05, 2013 4:00 PM - Saturday, April 06, 2013 7:00 PM
Where: Tawes Fine Arts : All Floors
Event Type(s): Conference

Conference focuses on the notion of (dis)reality as an imaginative category open to interpretation within various disciplines. The conference seeks to explore Western and non-Western notions of (dis)reality and its relationship to realities in various cultural and literary imaginaries. Questions we want to consider include, what do we mean when we say "(dis)reality"? Who and what delineate the constraints of reality? In what ways has "reality" been defined, upheld, or employed? In what ways has a "reality" been challenged, undermined, brought into play, and (dis)located by various writers and cultures? How do we understand the histories of Western and non-Western realities in the Digital Age?
