Papers are sought for a proposed panel on “Representations of Trauma in
Literature and Film” at the Cultural Studies Association Annual Meeting at
New York University, May 22-24, 2008.
Psychotherapists such as Dori Laub, Bessel van der Kolk, Onno van der Hart,
and Judith Herman have repeatedly underscored the visual nature of
traumatic experiences, which tend to be engraved in memory in the form of
images or icons. This would suggest that visual media provide the most
expedient canvas for representing these moments of crisis, and movies like
Sidney Lumet’s The Pawnbroker (1964), Christopher Nolan’s Memento (2000),
or Brad Anderson’s The Machinist (2004) confirm the validity of this

THE IDEOLOGY OF POETICS AND POETIC FORM AND PRACTICE IN THE EIGHTEENTH
CENTURY

8 December 2007

Institute for Cultural, Social, and Policy Studies

University of Salford

 

The historicising of eighteenth-century literature in recent years has
culminated in highly contextualised studies of expository prose and
fiction; eighteenth-century poetry has too often been seen as a remote
medium that did not respond to the social, political, and cultural
changes that society underwent. With the (re-)discovery of an alternative
literary canon, more attention is paid to the interaction between form
and ideology.
