With an increasing interest for a globalized and diverse society, the quest for an authentic self is more readily apparent and therefore further conflates the problem of representation. Globalization expands beyond social media and encroaches on the realms of the public and private spheres. However, the process of authenticity only further stabilizes potentially harmful ideologies that promote illusions of truth. In some instances, language (literature), film, and art, because of their figurative element, expose the artificiality of representation and engage the issue of authenticity. How are certain claims to truth (authenticity/referentiality) formulated, regulated, and destabilized through representation in literature, film, and art?

Issues of technology and film have long been considered fundamental bedfellows. Studies of technology's impact both on the cinema - from the coming of sound and colour to the rise of digital media - and within its films have shaped much scholarly thinking. Indeed, representations of technology's effects on modern and future life shine a light on our most elemental fears.

"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978

"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
— Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology

In a world that is both rapidly urbanising and globalising, it is widely acknowledged that it is crucial to facilitate urban education that is based on global knowledge and addresses international issues. But it is not always clear how this can be best implemented in practice, especially to ensure urban education plays a constitutive role in addressing issues of urban inequality and global disparities in the production of urban knowledge, and in the application of expertise.

The American Hobo, MLA 2016, 1/7-1/10

updated: 
Friday, February 13, 2015 - 12:19pm
full name / name of organization: 
MLA Special Session

Kerouac proclaims in his 1960 essay "The Vanishing Hobo" that cultural practices have made the American landscape inhospitable to the long-cherished tramp in literature and life. Despite this claim, the hobo continues to exhibit a cultural unconscious onto American narratives well into the present. This session aims to explore the hobo as 'he' becomes a special kind of subject in the twentieth century, breaking apart from early-century labor politics to become a transitional figure of individualistic and opportunistic strategies.
