University of Bristol, UK

This one day conference is intended to explore the role of our concept of 'transition' in literary studies. This exploration
can be phrased in a series of questions, with the foremost being whether our cultural definitions are more reflective of
critical trends than of changes in artistic practice. For example, is James Joyce's Ulysses the high point of literary
modernism and, simultaneously, the beginning of postmodernism? Or does this retroactive critical summation do artistic
violence to an open text? If we agree that there are such things as transitions, then we might ask a further set of questions:
How do changes in form reflect changing historical or technological conditions? What happens to the old category upon

Rethinking Early Photography, 16th-17th June 2015, University of Lincoln

Attitudes to photography have undergone a radical shift in recent times. Partly in response to these contemporary changes, historians, curators and photographic practitioners have begun to re-examine older forms of photography: exploring the wide variety of historical technologies and techniques, finding surprising ways in which images were manipulated and determining how an ideology of photographic realism was maintained. Yet there remains a need for scholars to explore questions of early photographic 'authorship', singularity and objectivity in much greater detail.
