The Sustainability of the Avant-Garde, Atlanta, November 7-9

SAMLA

In a 2005 essay entitled "Why Experimental Fiction Threatens to Destroy Publishing, Jonathan Franzen and Life as We Know It: A Correction," American fiction writer Ben Marcus suggests that by catering to the masses, authors have willingly diluted their literary works. For Marcus, this is frightening because it means that novelists are "selling out" to readers who crave easy reads in exchange for the author gaining some economic stability. Even worse, he attests that the publishing world is squeezing out those experimental writers whose works are not necessarily economically viable precisely because they do not appeal to a wide audience.

"Changing Humanities in a Changing World" International Conference, 27-29 November 2014

updated: 
Thursday, April 10, 2014 - 3:39am
Faculty of Humanities, Chiang Mai University

Our world is rapidly changing, and these changes – in communication, technology, politics, the economy and the environment – deeply and widely affect people across the globe. The problems these changes cause, whether at the personal or societal level, have become increasingly and overwhelmingly complex. Today's digital world, for instance, has caused instability in the existing contrasts between globalization, nationalism and localism. It has also resulted in a reshaping of human thought and emotion. New ethics and values, new worldviews, new questions of the self, spirituality, and identity, have emerged even as some of the old standards persist. This requires a new understanding of the world and our societies beyond the existing frameworks.
