The Uncanny in Language, Literature and CultureInternational Conference15 August 2020 – London, UKorganised byLondon Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

If you are familiar with made for SyFy films featuring cgi monsters and bloodshed, or if you have mistakenly rented a film that you mistook for a current blockbuster, or if you are still digging through the five dollar bins at various department stores then you are probably familiar with films like Sharknado, Mercenaries, Sinister Squad, American Virgin, Sunday School Musical, and  Snakes on a Train, all courtesy of The Asylum. Functioning similarly to American International Pictures did in the 1950s, this film company produces the same sorts of fare, accompanied by similar exploitation impulses.

Reflecting/Reflected Modernity: Sites of Interface between the Occidental and the Oriental

Call for Papers

 

‘Modernity’ tends to be used, within the humanities, to refer to something seemingly exclusively Western. Within the canonical histories of modernity, especially in literature studies and the discipline of history of art, ‘Western’ countries are seen as the instigators of what we now see as artistic and cultural modernism. ‘Modernity’, however, was not created in isolation within Western spheres. It came into existence through an intercultural exchange and reciprocal relationship between ‘East’ and ‘West’.
