UNApocalypse: Exploring Dystopianism in Texts

[UPDATE] Nabokov on Politics (SAMLA 87)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 2:56pm
Benjamin Mangrum / Davidson College

In a later preface to Bend Sinister (1947), Vladimir Nabokov claims, "the influence of my epoch on my present book is as negligible as the influence of my books, or at least of this book, on my epoch." The conventional reading of Nabokov as an aesthete who is insistent upon sharp divisions between fictional and political worlds has its principal source in the author's stylization of his own career. Yet this way of reading Nabokov has been complicated through such recent studies as Andrea Pitzer's The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov.

The early promise of the Internet as an opportunity to enhance community, bringing people together to work together toward positive ends, long seemed a pipe dream. More recently, social media has become an undeniably powerful site of cultural influence and change. Women's issues in particular benefit from an expanded dialogue online.

(In)visible Lines: Feminist & Gender Studies. Uni of Limerick, 20-21st November 2015

The feminist movement has been categorised as a series of different waves, first, second and third, with some contemporary critics suggesting we are now on the precipice of a fourth wave. Each of these stages had their own aims and means of achieving those aims: underlying all was a quest for equality, for some or for all. Increasingly this neat categorization of the feminist movement has been questioned and challenged, especially with the internet age offering a greater platform of communication for female-identified individuals and feminists alike.
