Theorising the Popular Conference 2018

Liverpool Hope University, July 11th-12th 2018

 

The Popular Culture Research Group at Liverpool Hope University is delighted to announce its eighth annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Building on the success of previous years, the 2018 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges academic hierarchies and cuts across disciplinary barriers.

In his 2001 book, The Postcolonial Exotic: Marketing the Margins, Graham Huggan contends that writers from formerly colonized societies negotiate their marginality and the “realpolitik of metropolitan economic dominance” by providing “exotic registers” and making them “palatable” for “predominantly metropolitan audiences” (viii). This non-guaranteed MLA session organized by The Africa Since 1990 forum invites submissions examining literary texts from the Global South that circulate well beyond their immediate contexts of production. To what extent is this circulation due to the exoticism that Huggan elaborates in his book? What other factors may be at work in the appreciation and appropriation of these works in new environments?

The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international conference to  showcase and explore the latest methods for analyzing literary and historical texts using computers. A particular focus will be the ways in which literary and historical scholarship will turn increasingly algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new kinds of questions to ask of our texts because we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The conference will bring together, and put into fruitful dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and historical methods and those exploring and inventing new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.

In his introduction to J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century, Tom Shippey argues that “The Lord of the Rings has established itself as a lasting classic, without the help and against the active hostility of the professionals of taste; and has furthermore largely created the expectations and established the conventions of a new and flourishing genre.” The impact Tolkien has made on not only high fantasy, but also on the importance of language and mythology studies is undeniable. The influences of World War I, modern industrialization, and more are evident in his works as socio-political commentary, despite his personal dislike of allegory. Tolkien studies reflects a thriving culture in and outside the university.
