Difficulty is a key quality associated with modernist works and a key value associated with modernist theory. T. S. Eliot’s “The Metaphysical Poets” valorizes difficulty’s intellectual and mimetic value, claiming that, because civilization is various and complex, poetry should force or dislocate language into meaning. D. H. Lawrence’s “Morality and the Novel” values emotional difficulty as necessary to the journey toward newness, both in life (“A new relation … will always hurt. So life will always hurt”) and art (“to read a really new novel will always hurt”). Echoing Freud, Lawrence says there will always be “resistance” to newness.
We are delighted to announce that the 2nd International Conference ‘Around the Humanities’, focusing on the theme of Madness, will take place in Cracow 27-28 April 2019.
We invite submissions in the broad field of humanities and social sciences, including medical humanities and jurisprudence. Submissions from students and PhD candidates who in their interdisciplinary research address the issues of madness and insanity are particularly encouraged.
The deadline for submissions is 24 February 2019. The abstracts for 20-minute presentations should be 150-250 words long. Attaching a bibliography is encouraged and it does not count towards the word limit.
