Monstrous Geographies

5th Global Meeting
Call for Presentations 2016

Wednesday 11th May – Friday 13th May 2016
Prague, Czech Republic

What do ancient burial sites, haunted houses, post-apocalyptic landscapes, and even recent topographical manifestations of the Gaza conflict or the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 all have in common? Even if they no longer bear the physical markers of violence, the geographic locations of devastation and human suffering are often imbued with memories of horror that are passed on from generation to generation through various textual, audial and visual media.

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
