WALT WHITMAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION

Whitman and Social Theory

Leaves of Grass has long been a literary touchstone for ideas about nineteenth-century social formations of gender, sexuality, race, and class. Lately, though, Walt Whitman seems to be less a poet of social experience than a full-blown theorist of sociological issues like embodiment, socialization, object relations, crowds, and culture. This session seeks papers that examine Whitman's studies and interpretations of social phenomena, and trace the subsequent uses of his work as a theoretical resource to comprehend modern social problems.

Spying on Spies: Popular Representations of Spies and Espionage, 3-5 Sep 2015, The Shard, London, UK [ABSTRACTS DUE 15 FEB 2015]

Spying on Spies

Keynote speakers: Professor Phyllis Lassner (Northwestern University) and Dr Rosie White (Northumbria University)

2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps, one of the spy genre's most influential novels. With its roots in the 19th century, the genre evolved and diversified throughout the 20th century, providing, as Michael Denning writes, a 'cover story' that has rendered 'the political and cultural transformations of the twentieth century into the intrigues of a shadow world of secret agents'. Capturing the ever-evolving zeitgeist of cultural and political anxieties, the genre has encompassed (and exploited) 'hot' wars and 'cold', and most recently a global War on Terror.

Both popular and scholarly press has been confronting the changing role of higher education, from Frank Donoghue's Last Professor to Henry Giroux and Kostas Myrsiades's collection Beyond the Corporate University. Technology, economic shifts, and cultural-existential needs change roles for faculty, students, and administration. Many incoming scholars face a "brave new world" of increased adjunct positions, declining tenure, MOOCs, reduced pure research, and students who may not fit traditional models. Finding a new home in this shifting world may prove difficult or exciting, depending on the outlook.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.
