University of Sydney

The conference will open up the nuances of the term 'prosaic' by exploring the privileged relationship between the novel genre and multiple and complex categories of the 'everyday'. Building on John Plotz's notion of the novel as exemplary 'portable property', the conference will address the relationship between novel-reading as everyday activity and the novel's prosaic subject matter, whether this is conceived as material object, cultural practice, or speech act.

"A Perfect World?" (Third Salzburg Institute Symposium, University of Salzburg, Austria, July 31, 2014)

Gregor Thuswaldner, The Salzburg Institute of Religion, Culture and the Arts

The conditions for perfect worlds, of utopias and dystopias, and the possible dangers of such concepts have preoccupied not only religious and philosophical thinkers, but also writers, composers, visual artists, stage and film directors, and other artists. Such visions have often stood at the center of political ideologies, including communism and fascism. Their adherents are promised a perfect world, the attainment of which sanctions censorship, terrorism, the confinement of internal enemies, genocide, and war. But visions of perfect worlds are not restricted to the political, religious, and philosophical realms. The peddlers of today's Western pop-culture still advertise a perfect future to the disillusioned.
