States of Crisis
Friday, 9 October 2009
Department of English and American Literature
Seventh Annual Graduate Conference
Since its origin in the ancient Greek krisis, "decision," related to krites, a judge, the term crisis has referred to ideas of discernment, evaluation, criticism, and sifting of evidence. In literary studies, for example, one can see moments of crisis in shifting aesthetics and changing genres as well as in literary tradition(s), character representation, and ideas of narrative. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship, this conference will explore different responses to the idea of crisis in the humanities and social sciences.

Evolving ideologies of children's literature

H.G. Wells was convinced that writing must communicate a direct social purpose and that its aesthetic qualities must be joined inextricably with it, which put him, necessarily, at odds with much of the Modernist aesthetics of the early 20th century (especially the idea of art for art's sake). And yet, Wells' rejection of certain aspects of emerging Modernism was not a disavowal of writing that concerns itself with beauty, truth, and pleasure (the realm of aesthetics); nor was it an implicit critique of aesthetic sensibility and its socio-historical significance. Rather, for Wells, to abstract the realm of the aesthetic from everyday life, from the here and now, was to make it largely irrelevant.

Reminder: "The Paradise of the Learned": Interdisciplinary Education in Nineteenth-Century Literature
'The remark was sufficient to withdraw Jude's attention from the imaginative world he had lately inhabited, in which an abstract figure ... was steeping his mind in a sublimation of the arts and sciences, and making his calling and election sure to a seat in the paradise of the learned' (Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure).
