The Apocalyptic Imaginary in (post-) 9/11 Literature and Culture

updated: 
Monday, February 13, 2017 - 12:02pm
ASAP (Association for the Study of Arts of the Present)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This panel will explore themes and representational strategies of 9/11 and/or the apocalypse in post-9/11 literature and culture (movies, television, painting, music, etc.).

Questions to consider include but are not limited to:

How do artists (broadly conceived) try to capture the singularity of 9/11 as a world historical event?  Alternatively, how and why do they resist notions of singularity, protesting the idea that it was a day after which “everything changed” forever?

How has this historical moment altered our conceptions either human nature or of ecological systems more generally?

How has Islamophobia been encoded in grotesque representations of the Other?

In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.
