Contemporary Literary Culture conference

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 12:08pm
The Research Team on Contemporary Literary Culture at the University of Bielsko-Biała
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 14, 2024

Our meeting will be devoted to exploring the main problems of contemporary literary culture. Embracing the foundational principles of Stefan Żółkiewski and equally foundational, though alternative, suggestions by Janusz Sławiński, we perceive it as an integral part of global social/cultural communication (the roles of writers, models, and the circulation of literature) along with specialized infrastructure (publishing, institutions, magazines/media, the literary market – the so-called literary life). It is also a dynamic system of author-reader relations and a set of dispositions/skills (knowledge, taste, competence) enabling a sense-making engagement with literary texts.

The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

Sacred Cultures in Politics

Sacred Cultures in Politics, a collection of scholarly articles, seeks to reveal sacred and/or religious rhetoric serving as persuasive tools in the vast arena of political activism. In his Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life, Giorgio Agamben challenges religious institutions to use their persuasive powers not for priestly privilege but “to make a new possible” for humanity. In a similar spirit, this collection seeks to make transparent both the rhetorical systems and their use in local, national, regional, or global political arenas.

What cultural objects and phenomena are designated to be ugly, bad, unacceptable, and monstrous, especially in relation to gender, sexuality, disability, race, class, and caste? Whose histories are marginalized or overlooked because of their perceived bad taste, abject existence, and the taint they leave on supposedly beautiful, grand narratives of nationhood, well-being, or progress? How do kitsch, camp, and excess function in the realms of activism in contemporary politics? How do nasty, revulsive art, literature, and performances act as sites that engender questions that push boundaries of societal mores and cultural hierarchies?

Friday, December 8, 2023

Since the fin de siècle, the ubiquity of the camera has disrupted notions of gazing at others and ourselves. Moving from the 20th century to the 21st, the camera’s gaze has taken on many overlapping and at times antagonistic roles: it archives, captures, testifies, interrogates, interrupts, imagines, distorts, exposes, imposes, and surveils.
