MSA 14 (Oct. 18-21, 2012)--Proposed Panel on Modernism and Psychology

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 8:50pm
Jen Spitzer and Meg Hammond / New York University

We are looking for a third contributor to round out a proposed panel on modernism and psychology for the 2012 Modernist Studies Association conference in Las Vegas. Papers for the panel will either explore the role(s) that psychological theories and practice played in the creation of modernist art or use recent psychology to illuminate some aspect of modernism. Although we are particularly interested in papers that treat schools of psychology other than Freudian psychoanalysis (such as behaviorism, social psychology, cognitive psychology, or self psychology), we also welcome papers that examine non-orthodox Freudian approaches. We especially hope to see proposals for papers on visual art, film, theater, or architecture.

The list goes on and goes way back. Celebrity culture in Canada, although vastly under-estimated, continues to be a massive cultural and economic force to be reckoned with and such a reckoning is long overdue.

Wounded Bodies, Tortured Souls: Narratives of Victorian and Neo-Victorian Trauma.

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 9:23am
Centre for Studies in Literature, University of Portsmouth.

Postgraduate Conference, University of Portsmouth, 14th June 2012

Keynote Speaker: Dr Marie-Luise Kohlke, University of Swansea

In recent years the study of trauma has become central to contemporary conceptualisations of personal and collective narratives of pain and loss. Often identified as a 'modern' phenomenon, a product of industrialisation and modernisation, trauma emerged as a distinct pathology alongside the rise of a middle-class readership, and accounts of physical and psychological wounds abound in Victorian fiction. In turn, Victorian tropes of trauma have been appropriated by the neo-Victorian novel, often in ways which offer a self-conscious or critical engagement with past representations.
