Poetry & Psychoanalysis
30 June – 1 July 2012, Oxford University, UK
Keynote speaker: Adam Phillips

Just as psychoanalysts have mined poetry for examples and case studies, the insights and the problems of psychoanalysis have been a rich source of inspiration for twentieth and twenty-first century poets. Psychoanalytic readings of poetry from Romanticism to the present have moved beyond symbol-hunting and biographical decoding: recent scholarship has explored a wide range of psychoanalytically-informed reading practices and models of subjectivity. In what ways do these two discourses continue to speak to one another? What preoccupations do they share? What frictions result from their conversation?

Intellectual Rivalry and Divisive Texts in 20th Century African-American Literature

What debates have informed our contemporary understanding of African-American Literature? Prior to its (purported) institutionalization, 20th Century African-American Literature was both a hot commodity and a dangerously fluid entity, mercurial and volatile depending on the reader. This panel intends to explore the written altercations between black writers during the years 1920-1960.

300-word Abstracts may be sent to: Timothy Griffiths, Brooklyn College, tgriffiths@brooklyn.cuny.edu

Deadline is September 30th.

Society is in the balance a significant generational flux. As the baby boomers face retirement, they are sandwiched between caring for their elderly parents and encouraging their adult children to leave the nest. Gen X—now firmly at the helm with Gen Y biting at their heals close behind— is rapidly resisting its entry into middle-age. In the last American election, this generational transition played a key role in electing Barrack Obama, and in Australia the significance of this demographic shift is yet to be fully understood.
