ext: writing extinction

Imagine thinking about extinction, starting from ext and extending, textually and extra-textually, and coming back to the raw, more-or-other-than-death thought, perhaps unthinkable, of extinction.

ext would suggest the perhaps for now truncated name of something needing thinking, a thought without a thinker, that would be more than a thought—extinction, textuality, extravagant thinking of the effects of a vanishing without trace, that we can’t face.

Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War and 80 years since the publication of Three Guineas, the 28th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf invites papers addressing the dual theme of Europe and Peace. From the ‘prying’, ‘insidious’ ‘fingers of the European War’ that Septimus Warren Smith would never be free of in Mrs Dalloway to Woolf’s call to ‘think peace into existence’ during the Blitz in ‘Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid’, questions of war and peace pervade her writings.

“In defense of close reading or, reading the minuscule”

FRENCH ASSOCIATION FOR AMERICAN STUDIES

This panel proposes to read texts to the letter, to risk close reading as a challenging methodology. In le Risque de la lettre, Isabelle Alfandary explains that “the negativity of writing depends on the otherness that is always already introduced at the heart of an impure and heterogeneous system, one it contributes to shaping—language. Writing does not go without a risk, the risk literature and language run through writing lies at the heart of language itself, and constitutes language as risk. From this point of view the literature of the letter carries the trace of the risk inherent to any act of speech” (Alfandary 2012, 27). Besides, reading a text to the letter, whatever its nature, means having it run the risk of writing.

       The renewed interest in exploring the urban theme in the arenas of culture studies and the constructs of literary and artistic creativity, has quite often coincided with the moments of crises, of major changes in the conceptualizing of historical processes and of the human experience and consciousness of environmental questions, of belonging and alienation.

There is a famous parable that goes something like this: When six blind people came across an elephant, they were curious to know more about it. Since they would not be able to see it, they decided to touch and feel it anyway.  "Hey, the elephant feels like a tree trunk” said the person who touched his leg. "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second one who touched the tail. "Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the one who touched the trunk of the elephant. "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth person who touched the ear of the elephant. "It is like a huge wall," said the fifth person who touched the belly of the elephant. "It is like a solid pipe," said the sixth person who touched the tusk of the elephant.
