BABEL Conference: OFF THE BOOKS: Making, Breaking, Binding, Burning, Leaving, Gathering
The BABEL Working Group is a non-hierarchical scholarly collective and para-institutional desiring-assemblage. BABEL’s chief commitment is the cultivation of a more mindful being-together with others who work alongside us in the ruined towers of the rubble of the post-historical university.
From Oct. 9-11, the University of Toronto will host the BABEL Working Group Conference “OFF THE BOOKS: Making, Breaking, Binding, Burning, Leaving, Gathering.” The conference has a dual focus: on the one hand, a rigorous study of book history and media studies, and on the other, serious discussions about academic activism, para-academic pursuits, and the current state and future directions of the modern university. The conference also has a number of artistic and performative contributions.

If anyone would like to register for the conference (so we can make you a name tag to wear at the conference itself), please tell them to email the conference email — firstname.lastname@example.org — and state that they are affiliated with the U of T, and that they plan on attending the conference. They can also feel free to email me at email@example.com if they have any questions.
Thank you again for your contribution, and we hope that members of English can take advantage of the exciting activities we have planned!
All my best,
Dr Liza Blake
