I am looking for one final chapter for the edited collection Contemporary Visual Culture and the Sublime, forthcoming from Routledge in 2017 (https://www.amazon.ca/Contemporary-Culture-Sublime-Temenuga-Trifonova/dp...) as one of my contributors withdrew from the project. The topic is "the urban cinematic sublime" but I am also open to articles on the architectural sublime. Please send a 300 word proposal by the end of September to temenuga@yorku.ca   The completed chapter will be due November 10.

Biographical Forms in Contemporary Fiction

updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 10:56am
Kaisa Kaakinen, University of Turku
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This ACLA panel invites proposals on the uses of biographical forms in contemporary fiction. The point of departure of our conversation is the idea of approaching biography as a "dwelling of human experience", to borrow the expression put forth by the German author and filmmaker Alexander Kluge. Kluge characterizes writing as "the only form of preserving human experience independently of time", in a manner that does not leave it "imprisoned in individual biographies". How does contemporary fiction that employs biographical forms approach literary writing as imaginative mediation of the historicity of experience?
