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

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

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’.

Over the past 10 years, we have witnessed a number of efforts to reimagine African life from the vantage of a future “yet to come,” to borrow AbdouMaliq Simone’s resonant expression. From new science fiction narratives that seeks to delineate their own visions of tomorrow, to scholarly collections that seek to trace the prospects of emergent phenomena, to nonprofit organizations and think tanks that have organized festivals, workshops, and art projects devoted to imagining African futures, there has been a growing sentiment that African thinkers would benefit from taking an active role in the construction of future-oriented imaginaries.

As people migrate, they are drawn to the familiar in their need to adapt to the unfamiliar, forming communities whose cohesiveness emanates from shared value systems and experiences. Culturally homogeneous networks constructed by migrant communities in the U.S. both shape and are shaped by the spaces they occupy. From these socially constructed spaces (like Mary Louise Pratt’s contact zones), which can be construed as physical, emotional, intellectual, or creative, immigrant groups negotiate their position in U.S. society. This transnational lens affects both individuals’ perception of their place in society and their success or failure to thrive in this new home.
