Modernist Intimacies

Friday May 17, 2013.

The Centre for Modernist Studies
University of Sussex

Responding to recent scholarly constellations of modernism, affect and intimacy this one-day symposium, hosted by the Centre for Modernist Studies at University of Sussex, seeks to explore new ways of thinking about modernist feeling and modernist intimacies. Are there such things as "modernist feelings"? How might different modernist narratives of emotion in psychoanalysis, literary theory, philosophy and medicine be made to collide, disrupt and form new points of contact? How do modernist bodies come together and apart?

F. Scott Fitzgerald Society

We invite you to visit one of the most compelling and conflicted of Southern capitals—and one central to the story of F. Scott Fitzgerald—to celebrate and contemplate his life and work. As the birthplace of his wife, Zelda Sayre; the site where the couple met in 1918; the sanctuary to which they briefly returned in 1931-32 amid the crack-up of their marriage; the home today to the only Fitzgerald museum in the world; and the setting for many of his most memorable stories, Montgomery, Alabama, is a fantastic site for revisiting aspects of Scott and Zelda's creativity and personality.

[UPDATE] 'The Victorian Environment', AVSA, University of Melbourne, 6-8 Feb 2013

Australasian Victorian Studies Association

Deadline for submissions extended until 12 December 2012.

With the pressures of industrialism and the clustering of workers in urban centres, the Victorians were acutely aware that their environment was changing. Torn between nostalgia for a countryside that was in jeopardy and exhilaration at the rapidity with which their surroundings altered, Victorian literature and culture reflects a world undergoing radical change. Colonization and assisted emigration schemes expanded the scope of the environment still further, pushing the boundaries of the home environment on an unprecedented scale. These untamed physical environments enabled new freedoms, but also posed hostile challenges that invited attempts to control the natural world.
