Please submit 250-500 word abstracts to Amar Acheraiou at acherayou@sympatico.ca by September 30, 2010.

[REMINDER] The Apocalypse and its Discontents (9/1/10; 12/11/10)

updated: 
Friday, June 25, 2010 - 4:28am
University of Westminster

Whereas visions of destruction and fantasies of the end have always haunted humankind, the modern period in particular has been increasingly characterised by a mixed sense of concern and fascination with the apocalypse, and even more so during the twentieth century. Today we are constantly presented with scenarios of imminent destruction and annihilation, by politicians, scientists, religious groups, and writers, among others. This conference aims to explore and even question the widespread appeal of the apocalypse and we are particularly interested in narratives that either challenge or offer alternative responses to the apocalypse.
