The Theme

This year’s theme is an opportunity to reflect on how you have come to know your research through the varying ways it has been shared and presented.

Emerging out of the Without End 2018 symposium theme of ‘the documents in which research ideas are inspired and found’, the Without End 2019 symposium, now moves on to how we are tasked with collecting these ideas in to the propositions we can share. It is about how we, as postgraduate and early career researchers, can begin to breach discourse in numerous ways and the effects this can bring.

In a 1968 interview, John Dos Passos commented on what he saw as the growing marginalization of his work by recalling a conservation he once had with Ernest Hemingway. “He always used to bawl me out for including so much topical stuff,” Dos Passos remembered. “He always claimed that was a great mistake, that in fifty years nobody would understand. He may have been right; it’s getting to be true.”

The Matter of the Elgin Marbles: Romantic Materiality

Chair and Organizer: Dewey W. Hall (California State Polytechnic University, Pomona)

 

The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.
