Special Issue: Economies of the Gift in an Age of Austerity
ADAPTATION AND AUDIENCES
Literature/Film Quarterly Special Issue
Modernism has often been critiqued for being homogenising and Eurocentric. Yet, modernity was experienced differently by different societies and cultures, each pursuing their own specific historical trajectory. Across the world in societies as different as China, Australia, the US and Europe, modernist literature and art were, in very different ways, crucial mediators of modernity. This conference will survey diverse experiences of modernity and the place of modernist art and aesthetics in those experiences. Implicit in this discussion is the question of what survives of modernist practices and modernity as a project beyond the known debates around modernism and postmodernism towards a new relevance in the era of globalisation and climate change.
Writing, Ethics, and Aesthetics

IMAGER/Université Paris-Est Créteil
The concept of evil is age old, but the way it manifests in cultural narratives has continuously shifted. From the theological to the psychological, evil is a core theme of tales across the ages. What does the way it is portrayed tell us? Does it still hold as much significance? This one day conference at the University of Southampton will explore representations of evil in its many guises. Papers from across disciplines are welcomed. Suggestions for topics include (but by no means are limited to):
•Physical representations of evil
•The changing role of evil in narratives
•Blurred lines between good and evil
•The celebration of evil
•History of evil
•Evil protagonists and their stories
