One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past. His first feature film, Fuga (2006), which was poorly received by critics, focuses on a composer’s mental health issues; his striking trilogy about Chile’s recent history covers the Pinochet dictatorship in Tony Manero (2008), the last days of the Allende presidency in Post mortem (2010), and the democratic downfall of Pinochet in 1988 in NO (2012).

PANEL ON POETIC DIGRESSION for ESSE 2018 (www.esse2018brno.org)
From the parecbasis or ‘stepping away’ of Quintilian to the meandering twists and turns of the ‘loiterly’ work, this panel investigates the many and various modes of digression in poetry, figuring digression as a means through which we can rethink poetic effect - poetry’s grammatical, rhetorical, formal, philosophical, lyric and/or narrative power or force.
We invite proposals for conference papers exploring poetic digression and its effects. Topics for discussion might include, but are by no means limited to the following:

Can a liberal education make you a better discerner of truth?
It seems as if we're awash in information. From the moment we wake until we turn off our phones at night, we are bombarded with images, messages, news and information from a confounding number of sources. The entirety of the world's collected facts, seemingly left unadulterated only for us to interpret and justify, never feels more than a few taps away.
