Re-defining art: Artistic genres in literary works.

updated: 
Tuesday, October 27, 2009 - 4:43pm
full name / name of organization: 
The American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
contact email: 

This seminar seeks to identify how and why contemporary literature uses visual works of art (murals, montages, sculpture, paintings, photography, etc) as a means of interpretation. How does the translation of a visual piece into textual form affect both the verbal and the visual expressions? With a particular interest in inter-arts encounters that are cross-cultural in nature, we ask: How does the textualisation of art affect its reception? Does using art in crosscultural works add to or diminish its value as a cultural representation? Does textualization permit the representation of more than one culture? Does reinterpretation involve the loss of an essence, or a change? What is the role of the reader?

Syl-la-ble: Performing Syntactic Vulnerability

This panel addresses the roles that syntax and performance play in telling the stories of people who live, or live within, bodily transformations. An accident, an operation, a condition, even a diagnosis can alter the definition of the self. What results is a literary genre, the memoirs of people with bodies in pain. Is the vulnerability of language to nonsense (as in the loss of a syllable from a familiar word) analogous to the experience of such a self? How does the loss of an organ, of a function, of a potential, or the compensatory gain of a prosthesis produce writing? How can the ontological condition of "becoming a patient" be seen as an artistic genre or condition?
