MMLA 2013 Special Session (Proposed): Irony and Authenticity in Contemporary Artistic Production (Milwaukee; Nov. 7-10, 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 9:43pm
Janessa Toro/ University of Missouri/ Deadline: May 25

Is there room for earnestness and authenticity in contemporary media? In accordance with the 2013 Midwest Modern Language Association conference theme of "Art & Artifice", This panel explores the intersection of authenticity and irony in literature, film, music, and other media. While stable irony depends upon fixed meanings intended to elicit specific interpretations from an audience, contemporary theories of language, identity, and community emphasize the ultimate contingency and instability of meaning. Thus, the possibility for irony is thrown into question; is irony impossible, or is irony all-pervasive? Likewise, is any form of authenticity or earnestness possible in artistic production?

Oh you lost God! You endless trace!
Only because in the end hate divided you
are we  now  nature's  mouth  and  listeners.  
~ Rilke, The Sonnets to Orpheus, 26

A 'trace'  can be that which has existed, and which is now past; or that which has passed, in the case of a track or a footprint; or that which copied or drawn or outlined, such as a map or a word in the sand. It can be used as a noun or a verb: as an object or concept, or an active process of discovery.
