UMass Amherst English Graduate Organization

From surrealism to social networks to the "real" housewives of New Jersey, it's no secret that reality is socially constructed. "Reality"—-as a state of mind or as an embodied experience—-has historically been positioned in opposition to such realms of infinite possibility as dreams, fantasy, and imagination. In fact, far from being a state of stability and sanity, reality is often treated as that which must be escaped. But escape to what?

LitPop: Writing and Popular Music

Friday 24th June 2011, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne

Going beyond well-rehearsed comparisons between Dylan and Keats, this conference aims to bring fresh perspectives to debates about the forms and functions of popular music in relation to literature, exploring connections and conflicts between writing (fiction and non-fiction, past and present), and popular music (modern, contemporary or otherwise). Where cultural value was once sought for popular music through analogy with literature, or popular music and literary texts were seen as incompatible, writers and critics now borrow the demotic idioms of pop. Why?
