"Through me many long dumb voices": Performing Identities in American Literature (10 September 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - 4:59pm
Department of English Studies, University of Durham

Performing Identities in American Literature seeks to explore the ways in which American identity is defined, enacted and contested in texts from the sixteenth century up to the present day. Tapping into the influential, yet highly contradictory visions of identity which have dominated the modern field of American Studies, in which multiculturalist and pluralist critiques of a unified national sensibility are set against the "indifference to difference" of an increasing cosmopolitanism (Michaels, 2004), the event invites fresh discussion of the identities contained and performed beneath the umbrella term "democracy".

Papers exploring the literary and cinematic representations of the Italophone Jewish experience will constitute the principal focus of this panel. Presentations on unstudied/understudied artists are especially welcome. This panel aims to move beyond the tendency exhibited in some academic circles to look at Primo Levi's experiences as emblematic of those of the Italkim in general, but also to properly contextualize the study of Italian-speaking, foreign-born authors such as Edith Bruck and Giorgio Pressburger who (among others) have had an undeniable impact on how audiences perceive the modern Italian Jewish experience.
