"Principles of Uncertainty"
A Conference on Critical Theory
Keynote Speaker: Martin Hägglund
The students of the Department of Comparative Literature at the City University of New York Graduate Center present the first annual interdisciplinary conference on literary theory to be held Friday, May 4, 2012. This conference is being given in support of the CUNY Graduate Center's proposed certificate for Critical Theory, which is dedicated to the study of literary and critical theory.
We invite papers from all disciplines focusing on works from any period that explore the theme of uncertainty as it pertains to literary and critical theory.
Signaled in colonial portrayals of a New World rife with lush resources and intense mortal dangers to contemporary discourses surrounding public healthcare and its monetary costs/benefits---the country's physical and economic "well being" have long been connected in the public psyche. Recognizing the symbolic possibilities behind this connection, American authors frequently used it to explore public and social issues affecting their nation and its citizenry. This panel seeks projects which explore such connections. Essays may pertain to any American literary period or genre. In addition, all cross-disciplinary and/or hemispheric approaches will be considered. Possible topics may include but are not limited to:
International trans-disciplinary conference focusing on practice and theory of trade policy for small states in the contemporary global economy drawing on the experience and lessons from the Caribbean.

The last decade has produced a definition of Late Modernism as an array of aesthetic practices united by a departure from the hallmarks of early and high modernism. "Late Modernism," as defined by texts such as Fredric Jameson's A Singular Modernity and Tyrus Miller's Late Modernism, takes shape as a program aimed at revising modernist practices of formal and ideological innovation originally designed to generate critical distance from the dominant social norms, political trends and popular-cultural modalities of early twentieth-century Euro-America.

In the early days of the Internet, there was much talk about moving from the offline world to the online world. Fanboys to cybertheorists proclaimed the demassification of culture. Life, we were told, would become increasingly virtual and the world of things wouldn't matter much. In their 1994 preamble to "Cyberspace and the American Dream: A Magna Carta for the Knowledge Age," cyberlibertarians Esther Dyson, George Gilder, and George Keyworth nicely articulated this early Internet dream: "The central event of the 20th century is the overthrow of matter. In technology, economics, and the politics of nations, wealth—in the form of physical resources—has been losing value and significance.
