Marxist and Psychoanalytic Approaches to the Culture of 9/11

By now it is clear that the attacks of September 11th have provided grist for the culture industry mill, spawning a variety of theoretical, literary, and cinematic production. This panel seeks to analyze these cultural productions from a specifically Marxist and/or psychoanalytic perspective. That is, panelists may do a Marxist or psychoanalytic reading of a particular book, movie, etc., or they may do a Marxist and/or psychoanalytic explanation about the industry of 9/11 culture in general.

Please send abstracts by May 15 to charlessumner@hotmail.com

Paul Bowles is widely acknowledged as one of the twentieth century's most skillful storytellers and imaginative composers of modern American music. His unsettling literary themes and expatriation to Morocco made him into a cult figure whose life and work continue to fascinate contemporary audiences.

By examining the interplay between literary, musical, visual and cultural texts, the conference aims at stimulating discussion on Bowlesian musical and literary themes, as well as cultural and anthropological issues and on the relationship between the artist's challenging work and current inner and outer geographies.
