Swansea University

Keynote speaker now confirmed - Dr Claire O'Callaghan.

2014 marks the 200th anniversary of the Marquis de Sade's death, but Sadeian influences remain prominent in contemporary literature, criticism, and culture. From Angela Carter's 1979 polemic The Sadeian Woman: An Exercise in Cultural History, Andrea Dworkin's seminal text Pornography: Men Possessing Woman (1981) and the recent cultural phenomenon of E. L. James's Fifty Shades trilogy, Sade's work permeates both fiction and non-fiction, and is a central component of contemporary debates surrounding feminism, sexuality and pornography. The anticipated film release of Fifty Shades of Grey pays testimony to Sade's ongoing presence in literature and other media.
