The Challenges of Late Modernism [UPDATE] - deadline extended 20 MARCH

updated: 
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 - 2:46am
MSA 14: Modernism and Spectacle (Las Vegas, Oct 18-21 2012)

This proposed panel seeks to examine the phenomenon of late modernism - is there such a thing, and how do we define it? Is it an analytically useful concept or should we think of another way of categorizing literature written after high modernism. Are there particular technological, social or political values that underpin late modernist writing? Can the concept of late modernism be extended beyond the Anglo-American world? Papers looking at either late modernism in a theoretical perspective or evaluations of individual late modernist authors are encouraged.

Please send a proposal (300 words) and a brief bio by 20 March to Marius.Hentea@UGent.be.

Hegel and Modernism

This panel takes up a simple, but perhaps exacting question: What can the study of Hegel contribute to our understanding of modernism now?

[UPDATE] Animate Objects, Inanimate Bodies - EXTENDED DEADLINE TUESDAY 10th of APRIL 2012

Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - 8:56am
King's College London

King's College London Annual Postgraduate Conference

What separates the human body from the objects around it? Are objects merely inanimate, inorganic things that are designed and used by human bodies? Is it solely the human body that is the physical site or limit of the self? Is there a divide between the human body and the object in the first place?

We are looking for papers which examine the interactions (or lack thereof) between bodies and objects in literature. These interactions could suggest an impenetrable divide between the human body and the object, could question where the body ends and the object begins, or could reveal how bodies and objects inform one another.
