Taking the conference theme of “Graphical Modernism” in a slightly different direction intimated in the title, this panel will analyze graphical representation of modernism made possible by Digital Humanities methods. One definition for “graphical” is “of or pertaining to a graph,” to data plotted and coordinates mapped. This panel will feature quantitative analyses of modernist culture in an effort to conceptualize what Raymond Williams might call a “sociology of culture,” the wide-ranging social practices that make culture possible but which are often obscured by the objects themselves.

WILLIAM DEMBY INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
May 31-June 1, 2018
University of Rome, La Sapienza
After a first meeting dedicated to Brazilian author Machado de Assis, the second “Symposium on Nineteenth-Century Literature” will be focusing on family as one of the most preeminent topics of nineteenth-century fiction, across different nationalities, cultures and authorial aesthetics. This broader scope will allow us to inquire into the role of family as a site of convergence and tension, where the concepts of individual and community, intimate and social, familiar and foreign are brought together both to meet and to challenge each other.

The interwar years (1918-1939) were a turbulent time in Ireland. With the aftermath of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland was a nation in upheaval and at war with itself. The symbiotic relationship between the formation of the Irish Free State and the poetry that was produced during the interwar period is of particular if sometimes neglected importance to the canon of Irish Modernism. This panel discussion invites participants to look more deeply at the body of work that came at the end of the Irish Literary Revival and led to the formation of Irish Modernism.
This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?
