Keynote Speaker: Prof. Susan Phillips, Northwestern University
Associate Professor of English and Alumnae of Northwestern Teaching Professor
Reflecting on the seismic cultural and political shifts of his own time, Francis Bacon pinpointed 'printing, gunpowder, and the compass' as the technological drivers which had 'changed the appearance and state of the whole world'. Bacon's identification of communicative (print), violent (gunpowder) and technological (compass) forms of cultural expression and exchange as world-shaping continues to resonate, shaping the production and interpretation of texts.
SSSL's meeting in Boston will be the first the organization has held in a location north of the Mason‐Dixon line. Ironically, in many ways this has never mattered less, as Southern literary studies' formative focus on regional difference and distinctiveness has been retrained to take in a broader view of the South's reciprocal material and imaginary relations with the US North, other regions, the nation, and transnational permutations of North/South dynamics.
The conference "Power and the Mediterranean" will be held on 13-15 November 2015 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, featuring keynote speaker Julia Clancy-Smith (University of Arizona).
