“CONTESTING AUTHENTICITY IN LITERATURE, 1200-1700”
30-31 March 2023 / Senate House, University of London
Event details and further information can be found at <authenticity2023.wordpress.com>. Papers will be given in-person, and attendance will be hybrid.
This two-day conference will explore the concept of “contesting authenticity” in later medieval and early modern literature, including both the production and ongoing reception of texts of contested authenticity. Proposals are welcome which consider literature in any language, including translations.
Laughter is a physical manifestation or, as Jean-Luc Nancy wrote, it is “a body shaken by a thought that is not possible”. In a performance of conceptual poetry you hear as much laughter as in a stand-up comedy performance. However, in the academic world, conceptual writing has been treated mainly as a rational endeavor or a cerebral and intellectual exercise. Enthusiasts and critics alike have often read conceptualist works very seriously.

Universities increasingly recognize the value of connecting students to local communities to promote concepts of care: volunteerism, problem-solving, stewardship. What role does literature play in place-based community engagement? How does reading or writing ‘literatures of place’ (regional or environmental literature, travel or nature writing, ecopoetry) connect students to a place and contribute to place-based solutions?

While we must consider real-world examples, histories, and theories that orient efforts toward reclaiming the commons, environmental humanists are uniquely poised to consider how creative texts (including but not limited to novels, short stories, poems, films, theatre, visual art media, and podcasts) represent the imagined labor of reclamation. Though these representations may range from realist to fabulist, from actionable to impossible, EH teachers, writers, scholars, and activists can share these representations in tandem with diegetic references to inspire new modes of reclamation.

Demographic concerns fundamentally shape programming and advertising on television, in the U.S. and globally, as they have since the advent of the medium, although many of these concerns have shifted significantly in the post-network era. Youth—defined broadly for these purposes as children (3-8), tweens (9-12), teens (13-19) and young adults (18-25)—comprise vital market groups offering complex and varied challenges to networks, platforms, creators, and advertisers. These challenges are especially heightened given the shifts in media consumption habits, the content restraints (mandated or otherwise) governing media for younger viewers, and the precarity of many aspects of social, cultural, and political life in the 21st century.
