Words and images have always been used to fashion, refashion and challenge identities. In the age of discovery, written and visual texts combined to negotiate identities of self and other; the nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw an explosion of visual technologies. In the early twenty-first century, our lives have become more permeated by multimedial texts and images than ever before.
Ambivalent Ambiguities: Depictions of Race in Young Adult
Dystopian and Science Fiction
In the epilogue to the second edition of The Politics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon heralds the closure of the very period she helped to define: "Let's just say it," she admits, "it's over" (2002: 165-166). This view has in recent years been echoed by an increasing number of cultural critics, who cite the failure of the postmodern aesthetic—developed in the 1970s and characterized by fragmentation, self-reflexivity, and irony—to embody the very real ethical and political concerns of twenty-first century citizens (cf. Eshelman, 2008; Kirby, 2009; Toth, 2010; Vermeulen and van den Akker, 2010; Abrahamson, 2013).

Court and Spark: An international symposium on the work of Joni Mitchell.
School of English and Journalism,
University of Lincoln, U.K.
July 3rd, 2015.
*Call for papers*
Joni Mitchell is widely recognised as an innovative, influential, much-loved and much-imitated artist. From her debut album Song to a Seagull to her most recent Shine, Mitchell's music: her tunings, her lyrics, her scope has drawn critical and popular acclaim. And yet, scholarly attention to her work has been relatively limited. This symposium will attend to Mitchell as a figure worthy of sustained critical thought and appreciation.
