In keeping with the conference theme of revolution, this panel will consider one of the necessary preconditions for revolution: opposition. The idea of opposition is central to the concept of Modernism because Modernism is so often characterized as uniting antithetical notions. To offer only a few examples, Modernism is regularly described as being old and new, objective and subjective, timely and timeless, conservative and progressive, coherent and fragmented. This panel will explore the oppositions inherent in the notion of Modernism by examining Modernist works that represent and dramatize those oppositions. The depiction of the opposition may be carried out through character, narrative, image or allusion.
University of Portsmouth Centre for Studies in Literature Postgraduate Conference 2015
Keynote Speaker: Professor Susan Pearce (University of Leicester)
BAKEA Symposium is open to all participants from the fields of English Language and Literature, American Culture and Literature, French and German Language and Literary Studies, Comparative Literature, Translation Studies.
This one-day conference deals with intersections of biography and/as experimental fiction in the 20th and 21st centuries. While for scientists an experiment is a common way of proving or disproving a hypothesis and thus of arriving at certainties, fiction writers have long been demonstrating that literary experiments tend to have the opposite effect: they open up alternative and multiple ways of reading and pose new epistemological challenges.
This Symposium aims to explore the complex and contested relationship between Trauma Studies and postcolonial theory, focusing on the possibilities for creating a decolonized trauma theory that takes account of the suffering of minority groups and non-Western cultures, broadly defined as cultures beyond Western Europe and North America. Our symposium will build on the insights of, inter alia, Stef Craps's book, Postcolonial Witnessing, and will respond to his challenge to interrogate and move beyond a Eurocentric trauma paradigm.
