    CONFERENCE: Migrations  
  McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB, UCSB, Santa Barbara CA
CONFERENCE: Migrations Keynote: Efraín Kristal (University of California, Los Angeles) Friday, May 27, 2016 / 8:30 AM McCune Conference Room, HSSB 6020 The Graduate Center for Literary Research’s third annual graduate conference seeks to explore the topics of translation, memory and exchange within the context of migration. We are interested in how questions of cultural transfer and linguistic translation—using translation in an expansive sense of the term—inflect textual and media representations of migration. Efraín Kristal, Chair of Comparative Literature and Professor of Spanish and French at UC Los Angeles, will deliver the keynote address on philosopher and cultural theorist Peter Sloterdijk’s engagement with narrative via his seminal notion of the sphere. Sloterdijk’s expansive and open-ended work highlights the shift from the fiction of a unified sphere to a plurality of contemporary, cross-cultural spheres—spaces that Kristal analyzes in relation to their varying degrees of continuity and discontinuity. In light of increased migration in globalized situations, the complexity of these heterogeneous spheres demands our attention as scholars, in order to address dilemmas and challenges of our moment. Papers analyze the translative practice of migrant writers, artists, filmmakers and intellectuals as they navigate the increasingly ephemeral and shifting spheres of co-existence in the age of globalization. Sponsored by the CGLR and the IHC.

California's Wild Edge: The Coast in Poetry, Prints and History  
  Wildling Museum, 1511-B Mission Drive, Solvang CA

The exhibition captures the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino, Point Reyes, and the San Francisco Bay down through Carmel, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica. Woodcut artist Tom Killion’s prints combine exquisite color with dynamic composition to portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations: storm tides crashing at Point Lobos, serene moonlit coves at Mendocino, fog encircling the Golden Gate Bridge. Deepening the experience are poetry and prose from Gary Snyder and other well-known California poets of the past and present. The exhibition is originated by the San Francisco Public Library and is based on a new Heyday book by the same title.   ($5.00
