SMU Graduate Student Conference, "Self(ie)-Representation," March 22, 2014

Southern Methodist University Graduate Student Conference

Self(ie)-Representation

The "selfie," with its many outlets and ironic iterations, has provoked critical and popular conversation celebrating the form as empowering or decrying it as narcissistic. But, though the "selfie" is relatively recent, the act of self-representation is of course very old. Autobiographies, diaries, fictional selves, privately-printed collections of poetry, obsessive editorial practices, commissioned portraits, fashionable clothing, elaborate grave markers, carefully-crafted public personae: life is the accumulation of selfies. This graduate conference seeks papers that explore such modes of self-representation and the discourses surrounding them.

Adventure Time!: Bakhtin's Chronotope in Fantasy and Adventure

"In the literary artistic chronotope, spatial and temporal indicators are fused into one carefully thought-out, concrete whole. Time, as it were, thickens, takes on flesh, becomes artistically visible; likewise, space becomes charged and responsive to the movements of time, plot and history. . . . The image of man is always chronotopic." (Mikhail Bakhtin, "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel")
