ENERGIES: THROUGH THE MATERIAL, THEORETICAL & TEXTUAL

University of Southern California

March 28-29, 2014

Deadline for proposals: December 15, 2013

Keynote Speakers: Fiction writer and essayist Roxane Gay (Eastern Illinois University) is most recently the author of An Untamed State (Atlantic/Grove), and Bad Feminist (Harper Perennial). Critical keynote TBA.

This conference will explore the many ways that systems of energy facilitate connection and exchange across borders and networks. As the world increasingly searches for new forms of sustainable and renewable power of all kinds, energies direct our lives on both macro and micro levels every day. In 2013, energy as an umbrella term relates not only to the technology that saturates our day-to-day existence — the forces that powers our cars, phones, computers — but also the invisible forces that connect us to each other, to nature, to the world around us and worlds beyond.

The idea of energy crosses disciplinary boundaries and historical periods, but holds a particular resonance for the questions engaged by the humanities. From the printing press to the camera to the Internet, technological and mechanical energy has long been integral to the way we communicate and create. Kinetic energy moves performing bodies across stages and screens; creative energy pushes the artist to new psychic spaces. Along with religion, art and literature have historically been primary catalysts for the exploration of the ways that vital emotional and spiritual energies surround and sustain — or destroy — us.
