Abstract

'The idea of influence in American literature', 31 March 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - 11:37am
English Faculty, University of Oxford, UK

This one-day conference aims to ask whether American literature might fruitfully be viewed as a product of its influences, and if so, whether it can – or should – be considered separately from these influences. This question leads to two further areas of consideration: firstly, how the fluidity of American culture, informed by America's history of immigration and its complex demographic make-up, has helped construct American literature up to the present day; and secondly, how far American literature contains, excludes or even dams the constant in-flowing of cultural sources.
