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

updated: 
Thursday, October 15, 2009 - 11:06am
Centre for Studies in Literature, University of Portsmouth

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.

Imagining Other Histories: Illusion, Elusion, and Reality in Historical Fiction. The SW/TX PCA/ ACA in the area of Historical Fiction invites papers on the role of history and alternate history in fiction. To what extent have fiction writers, poets, filmmakers, myth makers, and other producers of pop culture bent the paths of history into different directions, into ur worlds, friendlier worlds, bleak worlds, parallel worlds, idealist worlds? Take, for example, the way that the reality of African American history was initially omitted from standard American historical accounts and the paths of history were bent toward the hegemony of a White world.
