"The Violence of the Image," Second Annual Comparative Literature Graduate Conference, State University of New York at Buffalo

Although the tradition of thinking about the image in philosophy and aesthetics goes all the way back to Plato and Aristotle there have recently been numerous critical approaches that depart from this tradition and envision the image as neither a copy of a copy nor as an ideological formation. The Graduate Conference "The Violence of the Image" seeks to further these new insights into the nature of the image.

What are the best and newest methods for creating, evaluating, and disseminating scholarly and creative work? This question motivates the next issue of NANO. As digital formats help foster new ways to share and critique written and artistic work, as more people try to squeeze through the narrowing bottleneck of publishing and approval and jobs, something has to give, or at least change.

[Update] The Institution of Literature: 250 Years of English Studies and Cultural Transfer (30 August - 1 September 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - 9:32am
Department of British Literature and Culture / Department of English Didactics, Goettingen University

Keynote speakers: Susan Bassnett, Terry Eagleton, and Konrad Schröder.

2012 marks the 250th anniversary of the election of John Tompson as the first Professor of English at Goettingen University. His English Miscellanies was one of the first English publications ever in Germany, and was also the first anthology composed in an academic context for the purpose of the mediation of English literature and culture to German students of English. The Miscellanies was therefore an important watershed in the development of British-German literary and cultural transfer.
