The Worlds of Thomas Pychon -- RMMLA 2013

updated: 
Tuesday, January 1, 2013 - 8:35pm
(RMMLA) Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association

Thomas Pynchon has codified himself in the Postmodern cannon as one of the most prolific and inspirational authors alive. His published literature includes works such as Gravity's Rainbow, The Crying of Lot 49, and Against the Day, among other novels and short stories. The extent of Pynchon's literature reflects cultures contextualized in the uniquely prophetic and veiled prose; a prose which, while in the postmodern genre, analogize the development of technology and society. Thomas Pynchon is an experimental author, at times using science as metaphors in his novels and short stories, worthy of analysis. As Pynchon continues to write, it is important for scholars to discuss his literature as it develops.

There is perhaps nothing more contentious than culture. Both as value and practice, it has certainly become the new discursive paradigm of the 21st century, despite of or maybe even because of its prolific signification to address matters that range from philosophy to politics, the economy to religion, ethnicity and aesthetics. Either as value or material creation, culture informs actions and labour practices. In its variety and spoken by many voices, culture is always at work, in a way that will necessarily require that it be graphed in the plural, as cultures.

Science and Literature Panel-RMMLA 2013 Vancouver, Washington

updated: 
Tuesday, January 1, 2013 - 7:04pm
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association (RMMLA)

The Literature and Science session of the RMMLA invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.

Immaterial Materialities: Materiality and Interactivity in Art and Architecture

Materiality has recently claimed centre stage in architectural discourse and practice, yet its critical meaning is ever receding. Tropes like material honesty, digital materiality, material responsiveness and dematerialisation mark out an interdisciplinary field where scientific fact and artistic experimentation interact, and where what in fact constitutes materiality and immateriality is constantly re-imagined.

Although modern technologies largely benefit the individual and have changed the nature of social and political interactions, they have also served to make for a more dangerous world inasmuch as our lives are revealed for public consumption, and privacy becomes a disputed right. Many writers and artists have exposed the benefits and perils of technology.
