The Queen of Suspense: A Patricia Highsmith Symposium

University of Chester, Friday 14th September 2018

 

The twentieth-century American author Patricia Highsmith is arguably experiencing a posthumous resurgence of popular interest (and, we would argue, not before time), owing, in part, to the recent success of Todd Haynes’s adaptation of Carol 2014, and Anthony Minghella’s earlier remake of The Talented Mr Ripley 1999. Many titles from her extensive repertoire have, thankfully, recently been republished, with tasteful matching jackets, by Bloomsbury and Sphere in the UK.

Women and Work

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

The meaning of “women’s work” has never been stable. While women consistently have engaged with both the production of home and labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. This panel seeks to address the many ways that women writers explore women’s labor in service to their families, their communities, and their nations, and how this labor contributes to the work of resistance and/or recovery across the Americas. How does women’s labor provide opportunities for collective dissent as well as recovery of women’s work?

POSTINDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS

This panel aims to explore the various literary spaces—both urban and organic—that define American literature after deindustrialization. How does the postindustrial economy remake the ways that people work in, live in, rely on, and relate to their built and natural environments? And how, in turn, do those new environmental dynamics reshape contemporary novels and poems?

Thoreau and Resistance 

What do Thoreau's writings offer contemporary modes of social and political resistance?  As we navigate an extended period of political crisis, what can we learn from Thoreau's complex responses to the national politics of his time? This panel will consider Thoreau's legacy for resistance movements with particular attention to the question of the relation between his political and natural history writings. Please send queries or one-page abstracts (for an 18-minute presentation) by January 15, 2018 to: kristen.case@maine.edu.
