'James Ellroy: Visions of Noir' will be held at the University of Liverpool from 1-3 July 2015. This conference will examine Ellroy's influence on the genre, his inspirations as a writer and his achievements in forging an idiosyncratic and unique style. We seek to foster an interdisciplinary approach in order to explore subjects such as Ellroy's reinterpretation of the history of Los Angeles and the United States, as well as the connections between genre fiction and cinema through film noir.

In the last twenty-five years, technology has made an enormous impact on the way we communicate, often with largely unforeseen consequences. From the perspective of its impact on narrative communication, digital technology has begun to augment, alter, and introduce new practices of producing, sharing and reading and analysing texts. David M Berry (2011, 12) argues that 'computer code enables new communicative processes, and with the increasing social dimension of networked media the possibility of new and exciting forms of collaborative thinking arises.'

We are constantly under pressure to define the "now." When did it begin? What does it include? When will it end? Recent attempts to capture this moving target have offered an array of starting points--the end of World War II, 1968, the end of the Cold War, the start of the new millennium, 9/11, the 2008 financial crisis. These attempts have also offered an array of periodizing concepts--postmodernism, post-postmodernism, late capitalism, neoliberalism, the anthropocene, the post-civil rights era, the post-human. We propose to respond to and circumvent this pressure in two ways. First, by creating a dialogue between our periodizing concerns and recent literature and art.

Exploring Moral Interfaces:
Private Worlds and Public Systems
An International Conference organized by The English and Foreign Languages University
7th to 9th October, 2015
"Everyone deserves a private life," says the female protagonist in the 1994 movie, Three Colors: Red by Krzysztof Kieślowski. The intrusive nature of the modern technologies that facilitate access—without consent or acknowledgement—to the private domains of people's lives further blurs the already hazy borderlines that separate the public from the private. The proposed conference will address some of the troubling issues relating to this phenomenon.
