Privacy (Brandeis English Graduate Student Conference, April 4 2014)

Brandeis University English Graduate Program

In the era of Edward Snowden, WikiLeaks, and corporate data-mining, our privacy seems like an endangered resource. Yet privacy has been an issue of contention for centuries, inviting debate at an intersection among literature, politics, and history. The privacy afforded to individuals, living in society with one another, is far from an unproblematic good, and its definition as well as its value relative to other goods, such as transparency or security, must be constantly negotiated.

Miming Capital, Capitalizing on Mimesis; ACLA, March 20-23, 2014 at NYU

Monday, October 14, 2013 - 3:33pm
Alek M. Jeziorek and Bradford A. Taylor

This seminar will explore how capital denies, appropriates and incites heterogeneous forms of literary and social imitation. While remaining sensitive to the risks of mimetic practice, we seek to understand mimesis as a fraught concept that reflects the precariousness of the subject under capital. Theodor Adorno and Jacques Derrida have already analyzed mimesis in economic terms: the former pitting mimetic comportment and the magical against the rationalizing drive of capital; the latter cynically grouping imitation and exploitation together under the term "economimesis."

With these two poles in mind, this panel seeks proposals that:

Rethink classical theories of mimesis from an economic, materialist perspective.

Negotiating Aesthetic Hierarchies: the Creative Tension between High and Popular Culture April 11-12 2014

updated: 
Monday, October 14, 2013 - 2:57pm
Graduate Association of French and Italian Students (GAFIS)

Throughout modern history, the labels "high" and "popular" culture have come to denote two categories which are most often hierarchical and polarized. Yet these categories are never truly stable or impermeable. Many authors and artists have found inspiration in transgressing, resisting, or rejecting the supposed boundaries between high and popular culture which in turn calls these very labels into question. They create hybridized genres, revolutionize traditional forms, and experiment with multimedia forms of expression in order to push their audiences to reconsider their own preconceptions about aesthetic categories and hierarchies.
