    University of Houston - Graduate English Society presents the University of Houston Second Annual Graduate Literature Conference - Revising and Revisioning Work: Examining Class in Literature and Language.  Saturday,  31 March 2012. Open to the Public. Conference will begin in the A.D. Bruce Religion Center Atrium at 8:30 a.m.

    The focus of this year's conference is social class and labor issues. Between the recession, partisan rhetoric about class war, and the current Occupy movement, class has moved to the forefront of American political consciousness. Consequently, this is an issue we cannot avoid in the academy. 

    Along with keynote speaker Dr. Rosemary Hennessy of Rice University's Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, we are looking forward to presentations by graduate students from a variety of universities and multiple fields of study.

    There will also be a community panel composed of Houston-area organizations which deal with social class on a regular basis.
