Confinement, Resistance, Freedom [8-10 May 2013; Izmir, Turkey]

updated: 
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 - 10:14am
Ege University 14th Internatiınal Cultural Studies Symposium

Seemingly, the history of humanity has fashioned itself on the tri-partite relationship between confinement, resistance and freedom. Each and every epoch has its own forms of confinement which are met with its own kind of resistance which may or may not be resolved with some form of freedom. Ironically, even after the first decade of the 21st century these concepts still play a prominent role concerning the human condition. One would think that centuries of accumulated human thought and development would have opened up new avenues of discussion.

The F Word in Contemporary Women's Writing

updated: 
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 - 9:24am
Postgraduate Contemporary Women's Writing Network

Keynote Speaker: Angela McRobbie

Feminism has always found significant expression in creative
and critical literature, from poetry and pamphlets to modes of
the digital age: Twittering and blogging. Yet with its shifting
social and political manifestations, the term feminism itself has
frequently been seen to raise as many questions as supposed
answers, leaving it open to revision, contestation and new
expression. This conference seeks to examine the varied and
diverse ways in which contemporary women's writing since
1970 has engaged with and continues to respond to the 'the f
word'.
