NeMLA 2020 Seminar, 

Boston, March 5-8, 2020

This seminar seeks to explore the current engagements with "New Sincerity" in literature from Central and Eastern Europe. It expands the geographic borders of discourses on "New Sincerity" by moving beyond the North American and post-Soviet contexts. It also aims to examine the changes to the "New Sincerity" aesthetic in an age of "post-truth" and more than two decades after David Foster Wallace’s call for writers who are "too sincere."

Interactive Narratives – the Future of Storytelling and Immersion in mixed reality mediums and performing arts. This conference aims to investigate whether XR/extended reality (VR/AR/MR) works will acquire a status comparable to film, performing arts and video games in the near future. On this basis, they are looking forward to papers that address narrative experiences enabled by XR and especially VR technologies. In addition, they want to challenge established storytelling strategies and instead more thoroughly analyse ways of creating engaging experiences.

Passing on: Property, Family and Death in Narratives of Inheritance

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:54am
Aarhus University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 21, 2019

From Shakespeare’s King Lear to Flaubert’s Frédéric Moreau, who lives off of his uncle’s money, and Edward St Aubyn’s novels about the troubled heir Patrick Melrose, literature has always been occupied with inheritance and inherited wealth. The insights provided by this literary legacy are more important than ever. Once considered a relic from the aristocratic past superseded by liberal meritocracy, inherited wealth is now recognized as a source of rising social inequality. It therefore poses an important challenge for the present – and for the future. To meet this challenge, inheritance must be understood in all its historical and cultural complexity. For inheritance is more than a means of transferring wealth between generations.
