Everything is Not Going to Be Okay: Optimism in the Age of Catastrophe April 10th 2015

Graduate Conference at the Comparative Literature Department at University at Buffalo

Everyone – politicians, Disney films, pop songs, our therapists, friends and professors – keep telling us things will turn out alright, while almost every scientific report and every other news article we read counters that notion. Political activists are encouraged to affect change with smiles on their faces and cancer patients are asked to "fight" their disease with positive thinking. Obama's promises of hope and change spoke to the fears and desires of many, even though his campaign poster showed him looking in no specific direction at all. Everywhere we encounter the elusive message that we all share some common goal and that we're all in the same boat.

Alice through the Ages: The 150th Anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

15th-17th September 2015.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2015. Lewis Carroll famously opens his Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with his protagonist "burning with curiosity", which leads Alice to follow the White Rabbit into an alternative reality. That same sense of curiosity has circulated about Wonderland since the book was first published. This conference aims to offer new understandings of the work by re-evaluating long held truisms, subjecting the text to new theoretical approaches and considering the history of adaptation and its uses in popular culture.
