'The Lost Subject' is the Second Annual Postgraduate Conference hosted by the School of Humanities at the University of Dundee. It aims to explore the diverse applications of the notion of 'The Lost Subject' in both academic and creative terms. 'Lost Subject' can refer to research or practice that is not yet fully accepted (a condition that most research is in at some point) or involves the study of lost or recovered material. This conference also welcomes discussion of the process of research and the material that is 'lost' in the shaping of one's work but which might lead to other avenues of enquiry or practice. Other approaches may include, but are not limited to:

"The Genre Turn." This session will be devoted to assessing the state of the conversation about the genre turn in contemporary fiction epitomized by works like Colson Whitehead's zombie novel Zone One, Michael Chabon's alternate-history detective story The Yiddish Policemen's Union, much of Kelly Link's short fiction, Karen Russell's collection Vampires in the Lemon Grove, and Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel The Road. What are we saying about the modes, possibilities, problems, origins, meanings, and politics of the literary turn to genres (as opposed to the postmodern incorporation of genre elements)?

The Photographers' Gallery, London, Saturday 15 February 2014

Confirmed plenary speakers:
Professor Oliver Harris (Keele University)
Professor Allen Fisher (Manchester Metropolitan University)

William S. Burroughs's complex and provocative uses of the image challenge critical and theoretical orthodoxies. His works in writing, visual arts, cut-up and collage, painting, assemblage, photography, and in sonic arts, constantly return in multiple ways to a detailed and politically urgent enquiry into the nature and effects of the image, the word-as-image, and beyond.

Inspired by Simon Ortiz' "Towards a National Indian Literature: Cultural Authenticity in Nationalism" and Jace Weaver, Craig Womack, and Robert Allen Warrior's _American Indian Literary Nationalism_, this collection will be a site for emerging scholars and theorists (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) in the fields of Native American and First Nations literatures to illustrate where they see their respective fields heading and construct perspectives outside of western ideologies. The goals of this collection include not only to provide a site for these emerging voices to be collectively heard, but also to offer an alternative to the dominance of western critical theory in the academy as a whole.
