The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities March 10-11 2016

Thursday, November 5, 2015 - 2:01pm
13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
