"That Which Moves: The Kinetic Nature of Language and Literature"  

January 29th, 2010 ● 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.

Commitment in British Women Writers' Novels of the 18th and 19th Centuries

updated: 
Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 5:42am
full name / name of organization: 
Elise OUVRARD

As soon as novels developed, women played an important role both as readers and as authors, since among the 2,000 works which were published in the 18th century, 600 were written by women. One can then wonder about the way they used that means of expression and ask whether Mary Wollstonecraft opened the path for a British female literature characterized by commitment through her desire for political and social equality with men. Let us specify that during that conference the term "commitment" will be used in the sense it had in the 18th and 19th centuries rather than in the sense it took in the 20th century.

'Framing the Self: Anxieties of Identity in Modern Literature & Culture (31/1/10; 21/5/10)

Keynote speaker: Dr Sarah Churchwell (University of East Anglia)

Identity remains one of the most central and most contested concepts in circulation today. No individual or group can escape the question of identity in a range of categories be it gender, class, nationality or race. Yet, an understanding of one's 'self' in relation to these somewhat rigid categories is problematic and as a result representations of identity are continually plagued by an irresolvable sense of unease and anxiety.
