Transgression, Trespassing and Taboos in the Long-Nineteenth Century

Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference – Call for papers

Cardiff University, 10th April 2013

The long-nineteenth century (1789-1914) is a unique period for the study of transgression – it saw the impact of New Journalism; increasingly prominent debates over women's roles; and intense controversy over aspects of sex and sexuality. With the advent of mass print and the burgeoning periodical press came a huge appetite for sensation fiction alongside the continuing popularity of crime narratives. The multiplicity of genres and media in the long-nineteenth century emphasises the need to approach this period from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Making It Work: US Thought and Culture Between Praxis and Paralysis, April 5-6 2013

US Literatures and Cultures Consortium at the University of Michigan

Are there distinctively American attitudes toward objectivity and truth, judgment and action? Two of the most enduring cliches about US culture are, first, that its thought characteristically refuses universal grounds, and second, that it privileges material practicality over theoretical or metaphysical abstraction. Yet without universal grounds, how can we be convinced that anything is worth doing? Let's grant that it is; such a groundless granting may initially let us act with a sense of freedom and unlimited potential, but justifying or revising that action requires us to establish provisional grounds that can themselves be hedged, negotiated, interrogated to the paralyzing point of infinity.
