BEYOND THE CUT-UP: WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS AND THE IMAGE Conference

The Photographers' Gallery, London, Saturday 15 February 2014

Confirmed plenary speakers:
Professor Oliver Harris (Keele University)
Professor Allen Fisher (Manchester Metropolitan University)

William S. Burroughs's complex and provocative uses of the image challenge critical and theoretical orthodoxies. His works in writing, visual arts, cut-up and collage, painting, assemblage, photography, and in sonic arts, constantly return in multiple ways to a detailed and politically urgent enquiry into the nature and effects of the image, the word-as-image, and beyond.

Applied Pedagogies: Strategies for Online Writing Instruction

Background:

Over the past several years, a debate regarding the place of online writing instruction has endured on college campuses around the world. Although online course delivery increases educational access to some segments of the population, there are some scholars who believe that the online delivery is inherently inferior to more traditional methods of instruction. Compound that with the traditional lack of formal education in online pedagogy that most instructors receive.

Carrie Louise Sheffield University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Inspired by Simon Ortiz' "Towards a National Indian Literature: Cultural Authenticity in Nationalism" and Jace Weaver, Craig Womack, and Robert Allen Warrior's _American Indian Literary Nationalism_, this collection will be a site for emerging scholars and theorists (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) in the fields of Native American and First Nations literatures to illustrate where they see their respective fields heading and construct perspectives outside of western ideologies. The goals of this collection include not only to provide a site for these emerging voices to be collectively heard, but also to offer an alternative to the dominance of western critical theory in the academy as a whole.

Call for Submissions

In "Queer and Now," published in 1993, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick gestured to what queer can refer to: "the open mesh of possibilities, gaps, overlaps, dissonances and resonances, lapses and excesses of meaning, when the constituent elements of anyone's gender, of anyone's sexuality aren't made (or can't be made) to signify monolithically."

This panel examines how solo performances (on the page, stage, internet, etc.) examine Judith Butler's notion of precarious lives, that is the shared vulnerability, fear and insecurity of contemporary life. How are poets, actors, and citizens using solo performance to engage with urgent social issues and the precariousness of life?
