[UPDATE] Creativity and contingency (MSA 15, 29 Aug - 1 Sept, 2013, Brighton, UK)

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 4:57am
Modernist Studies Association (MSA)

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?
