The Department of Drama and Pre-1800 Literature and the International Shakespeare Centre at the University of Łódź invite you to attend the 7th Biannual "Drama Through the Ages and Medieval Literature Conference".
Traditional forms in poetry and prose have often been seen as opposed to accidental, unanticipated, or unseen forces. Writing that takes chance as its defining principle frequently positions itself outside or against the literary mainstream. How might we move beyond this restrictive binary to conceive of creativity in ways that embrace contingency, accident, and/or surprise? Interruptions, distractions, fortuitous forgettings, slips of the tongue/pen, factual or grammatical mistakes, occasions and commissions, joint authorship, collaborations within and across media, constraints of production—in what ways might these factors be integral, rather than opposed, to the creation of art from modernism to the present?
