Rethinking Hamlet's Modernity (MLA 2012, Abstract Deadline 3/1/2011)

Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 10:16pm
David Hershinow / Johns Hopkins University

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention. Is Hamlet's modernity necessarily tied to the intellectual history of the inward-looking, discontented self? Are there other ways in which Hamlet can be understood as modern or as the product(ion) of modernity?

This panel aims to account for Hamlet's representative status with respect to the modern human condition in ways that do not ultimately rest on a particularly entrenched philosophical tradition, one that points to Hamlet's frustrated interiority as an opportunity to theorize modern selfhood (e.g., Freud, Lacan, Benjamin, Adorno, and Nietzche). How else might we read _Hamlet_ with an eye for its modernity?

Call for Cultural Columnists: Brainy, Artful Generalists, Rejoice!

Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 3:03pm

Deadline for Applications: Saturday, 19 March 2011

With the intent of providing continued intelligent and entertaining content in the PopMatters' Columns section, we are looking to broaden our staff of columnists and the voice of our writers' community. We're particularly interested in writers who live and work outside of the US, but that is not a deciding factor; in all cases, no matter the writer's locale, we're looking for those who can approach an array of cultural subject matter from their patch of the world with an international sensibility; that is, contextualize the local with an awareness of its place, historical and current, in the broader world.
