Do you know what astonished me most in the world? The inability of force to create anything. In the long run the sword is always beaten by the spirit. Soldiers usually win battles and generals get the credit for them. You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war. If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannon shots.
– Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)

It is not troublemakers who will have the last word in a democracy.

Literatures of Modernity Symposium 2011

updated: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - 12:45am
Second Annual Literatures of Modernity Symposium, Ryerson University

"It is in its transitoriness that modernity shows itself to be ultimately and most intimately akin to antiquity," Walter Benjamin writes in _The Arcades Project_. For Adorno, modernity was a quality and not a chronology. How is modernity related to temporality? How is modernity related to technology, identity, the city? What are some of the popular icons of modernity? This symposium invites proposals on any aspect of modernity as expressed in literature or culture. In addition to academic proposals, the committee welcomes proposals for creative projects including photography, painting, video, film, or performance.

"Nature as Nurturer and Nemesis: Ecocritical readings of Daniel Defoe and his contemporaries [1/31/11;6/14/11]

updated: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - 12:09am
Lora Geriguis; Second Biennial Conference of the Defoe Society (Worchester, England)

Defoe's publication of the various pieces known collectively as "The Storm" (1704) set the stage, early in his career, for the significant role nature would play in his imagination. In his novels, nature alternatively functions as nurturer and nemesis to the travelers who traverse the globe. Robinson Crusoe's relationship to animals on the island both reconciled him to the place and provided some of his greatest moments of fear and dread.This panel will take up the challenge laid down by Rober Marzec in "An Ecological and Postcolonial Study of Literature: From Daniel Defoe to Salman Rushdie" (Palgrave Macmillian 2007) to consider the implications of reading Defoe's works through a deliberately ecological lens.
