The Poetics of Place: Performing Selves In and Beyond Cities March 10-11 2016

13th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.

REMINDER: The Dark California: Millennial Concerns in the Contemporary Pop-Cultural Readings of California

The Dark California: an edited collection

The turmoil of the new millennium has given rise to a plethora of uncertainties about both the present and the future, which find their reflections in a whole spectrum of conventions characteristic of contemporary popular culture – from the gothic to noir and horror to psychedelic, cyberpunk, or post-apocalyptic. Influences of such dark aesthetics can be traced in numerous depictions of California across a range of media: literary fiction, music, television, film, comic books, graphic novels, and video games. California is one region whose historical constitution as well as cultural renderings make it a unique space to confront the unknown.
