The time is coming when it will hardly be possible to write a book of philosophy as it has been done for so long: 'Ah! the old style...'. The search for new means of philosophical expression was begun by Nietzsche and must be pursued today in relation to the renewal of certain other arts, such as the theatre or the cinema.

What are the conditions in which performance happen or is made, in the wake of or in response to a disaster? But we can be more expansive and ask how performance can be linked to disaster, if performance perchance may be thought in the terms of a disastrous event, how such thinking takes on board the implications of linking these two terms: disaster and performance and what possibilities are opened for a politics and ethics of performance.

Competing Traditions The 20th and 21st Century Irish Literatures between Realism and Experimentation (30 June-1 July 2017)

University of Lodz, Poland

The tension between realism and experimentation has marked the development of modern Irish literature, being intrinsic to the work of a number of major Irish writers. Often regarded as a father-figure of all experimental writing, James Joyce was attacked by as different commentators as Lukács and Pound for the scope and radicalness of experiment, particularly in Finnegans Wake. However, Joyce himself considered his work to be firmly set in the realist tradition. At a time when he was yet to publish his first collection of lyrics, W. B. Yeats was encouraged by his father to write realist prose, which may eventually have contributed to his abhorrence of realism in favour of ever more daring experimentation in verse writing.

Early Atlantic Studies: Circulation and Material Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 10:48am
Purdue University Early Atlantic Reading Group
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2017

The Early Atlantic world witnessed unprecedented changes in mobility, allowing people, goods, and ideas to traverse the globe. Such transit thereby created new pathways for exchange. From the spice trade to the slave trade, scholars have traced the movement of bodies and objects (and objectified bodies) throughout and beyond the Atlantic world, highlighting the circulation of goods and their effects on personal, cultural, and national identity. Purdue’s Early Atlantic Reading Group invites explorations of the circulation of material goods and bodies for a graduate student colloquium that emphasizes material culture, literature, and mobility in the Early Atlantic world.
