One-day Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Symposium at the University of Birmingham (English Dept.)

'Anything that does modify a state of affairs by making a difference is an actor - or, if it has no figuration yet, an actant'

(Bruno Latour, Reassembling the Social, 2005)

Whilst questions of human subjectivity and/or identity remain a persistent focus in literary and cultural studies, this one-day postgraduate symposium aims to consider how we might explore and account for agency from unexpected sources. Papers, plenaries and discussions at this symposium will place the non-human, the object, the supposedly 'lifeless' at the centre, with a view to casting new light on and rethinking definitions of human agency and identity from an unconventional, askance perspective.

Cambridge Scholars Press

I'm seeking article submissions for a volume of critical essays, which will be published by Cambridge Scholars Press. The collection will focus on twentieth-century female writers' responses to the work of Sigmund Freud with a particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women. The book will move beyond critiques of Freud and his influence on twentieth century ideas about gender, demonstrating instead the ways women writers have reclaimed agency through the artistic process. With that in mind, the essays selected for publication will address the following topics:
