Survival Logics: Narrative and the Margins - Graduate Student Conference: March 25, 2011

updated: 
Sunday, November 21, 2010 - 5:35pm
The Program in Comparative Literature at Rutgers University

Keynote: Professor Michael Rothberg, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Modes of survival often work against threats of erasure and containment. In turn, survival narratives reveal the restrictive procedures of normative forces and present logics that evade them. Often, different survival narratives come into conflict with each other and negate, eclipse, or marginalize the impact that each can have in the common or public sphere. If competing narratives about historical or cultural experience reveal the heterogeneous reality of social, political and cultural groupings, tensions and fissures are even more visible in contested spaces, whether in the center or at the margins of nodes of power.
