locatingpost45@gmail.com



WEBSITE: http://post-45.tumblr.com/


On March 19-20, 2015, Penn English will host Locating Post-45, a conference organized around the periodizing category of the Post-1945. A term that has emerged as an organizing principle for twentieth-century literary studies, we want to probe its curious, and perhaps provisional, durability. The conference would like to generate new considerations of the locations and worldedness of Post-1945 by examining its ever-branching critical crosscurrents.


Kicking off our conference are two discussion-based seminars. In advance of the seminar, participants will circulate 3-5 page papers on the topics below, which can range in format from position papers, close readings, overviews, syntheses, or any other type of critical engagement with the subject. Participants will then read these papers, and arrive at the seminar prepared to discuss any themes, confluences or divergences, questions or concerns generated by the group.
