Might contemporary literature help to construct a left politics for our time? Can it help us to revive old political models, or to invent new ones? This seminar solicits readings of contemporary literary texts that grapple (or afford their readers tools with which to grapple) with the possibilities of political engagement in the present. We ask how particular literary genres might be fit or unfit for contemporary political thinking, and how contemporary texts use literary form to engage questions of equality and inequality, corporatism, sustainability, democracy, racial justice, and human rights.

Rebecca West: Celebrity, Publicity, Memory
New York University, September 20-22, 2013

Although Rebecca West created a wide-ranging, original, and important body of work, her reputation has always been a matter of contestation. Indeed, to the frustration of scholars, her name remains linked to the better-known H.G. Wells, the lover of her youth and the father of her only child Anthony West, as recent books and films have shown (such as David Lodge's A Man of Parts and the Wells biopic War with the World).

1st Global Conference
The Citizen in the 21st Century

Monday 4th February – Wednesday 6th February 2013
Sydney, Australia

Call for Presentations:
n its most basic conceptualisation, citizenship is thought of as the rights and responsibilities that an individual has, and is owed to, a national government. The political concept of 'citizenship', however, is one that has been contested from its very beginning: from above, it has been a mechanism of control and surveillance; while from below, it is has been used as a tool for resistance and claims for rights and representation.
