Late Modernism and Spectacle, MSA 14 Las Vegas (Oct. 18-21)

Monday, February 6, 2012 - 1:10pm
Modernist Studies Association

The last decade has produced a definition of Late Modernism as an array of aesthetic practices united by a departure from the hallmarks of early and high modernism. "Late Modernism," as defined by texts such as Fredric Jameson's A Singular Modernity and Tyrus Miller's Late Modernism, takes shape as a program aimed at revising modernist practices of formal and ideological innovation originally designed to generate critical distance from the dominant social norms, political trends and popular-cultural modalities of early twentieth-century Euro-America. In Miller's words, Late Modernist aesthetics attempts to "register the ways in which intense social, political, and economic pressures . . .

Kisses and a Love Letter: Reading Sexed Subjectivity in Anglophone Literature and Visual Arts after Lacan's Seminar XX

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2012 - 5:40am
One-day International Conference: Friday, March 22, 2013, University of Franche-Comté, Besançon, France.

In the field of Anglophone studies in France and elsewhere, Lacanian theory remains an omnipresent marginality. Like Freud, Lacan is amply cited in current critical papers, but generally as a 'peppering' element, rarely as a fully assumed structuring theory of reading. It is to those who are engaged in a process of reading and deciphering subjectivity from within a Lacanian critical orientation that this call is primarily addressed. As an emanation from a research group interested in questions of gender and sexual identity, this conference will be particularly attentive to the intersection between the arts and women and to the implications of the Lacanian formulas of sexuation and the concepts of love, desire, and jouissance.

[UPDATE - NEW DATE] Works in Progress: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, June 1, 2012

updated: 
Sunday, February 5, 2012 - 2:30pm
Department of English & Comparative Literature, University of Cincinnati

The English Department at the University of Cincinnati invites you to submit proposals for an interdisciplinary academic conference held on June 1, 2012 focusing on the value of sharing works in progress as a means to increase experimentation, build community, and test new ideas. Rather than soliciting finished products from participants, we seek work that shows its seams, represents thinking in action, invites revision, and resists closure. In other words, don't hide your process; advertise it.

[UPDATE] Crowd control in the Renaissance

updated: 
Sunday, February 5, 2012 - 11:56am
European Society for the Study of English (ESSE)

This seminar will discuss the notion of "crowd control" from various viewpoints, distinguishing "crowd controllers" and the "crowds controlled" in different loci : on the stage, in the Church, the royal entourage, urban/rural milieus, in the British Isles or elsewhere.

The seminar, which will take place during the September 2012 ESSE conference in Istanbul, seeks to build on ideological and Foucauldian-based approaches to notions and instances of rebellion and social control, favored by critics in the 80s and 90s, by taking into account recent interdisciplinary research on manuscripts, law, iconography, film and performance studies, among others.
