En Route: Travel, Transport, Transit

Accounts of migration and displacement often focus on the bounded terrains of specific cities and the navigation of certain rooted sites, places of origin and/or destination. At the same time, cartographic and spatial terminology (e.g. “mapping,” “space,” “place,” “orientation”) are used in increasingly metaphorical ways, at the possible expense of more historical and/or materialist approaches to theorizing the global, the planetary, and the transnational. This panel invites contributors to examine the affective as well as material dimensions of being ‘in transit,’ the enabling condition of more familiar narrative tropes of exile, migration, travel and displacement.

Sylvia Townsend Warner and Modernism Conference

Today, when political misinformation abounds, nationalism and Fascism have reappeared, and we find ourselves contending with ideology in simple, complex and covert forms, Sylvia Townsend Warner’s writing seems ever more relevant. In turns insightful, comic, cutting, and poignant, her texts ask what art is for, and how we might navigate personal relationships, social change, belief and the past. Warner has an acute sense of the relationship between material conditions and human consciousness, of place and the ordinary. This conference seeks papers that analyse her importance for studies of, among other possibilities, modernism, politics (specifically communism), gender and sexuality.

In the face of the recent proliferation of the term “Anthropocene” in literary and cultural studies, how might we account for this geological epoch and its subsequent catastrophic environmental realities? As scholars of literature, we do not lack for theoretical models, both in and out of our “field.” Moreover, some of the most energetic and useful perspectives have taken up, broadly, a Marxian dialectical framework. Such perspectives include world-systems theory, ecological-materialisms, and in the field of literary studies and the humanities broadly, a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches framed under the banner of energy and/or environmental humanities.

DECORATING DISSIDENCE: MODERNISM, FEMINISM & THE ARTS
 CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd-4th November 2017
Queen Mary, University of London

‘FOR ME, THERE IS NO GAP BETWEEN MY PAINTING AND MY SO-CALLED ‘DECORATIVE’ WORK. I NEVER CONSIDERED THE ‘MINOR ARTS’ TO BE ARTISTICALLY FRUSTRATING; ON THE CONTRARY, IT WAS AN EXTENSION OF MY ART.’

    SONIA DELAUNAY

Decorating Dissidence takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to the work of female artists, designers, and writers to reassess the place of domestic art, craft, and the decorative in modernism.
