CFP: Everyday Empires: State, Security, Form. (4/15/06; MSA 10/19/06 =20=

=96 10/22/06)

This panel examines the points in "modernist" aesthetic production

where state power, imperial practice, and domestic life coincide.

In keeping with the emphasis of this year's conference on the

archive, we are especially interested in projects that draw upon

archival work or, alternatively, understand aesthetic form

itself as a kind of archive -- one that, in a Benjaminian way, might

register both political power and its utopian alternatives.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

-Formal articulations of power (Political and narrative sovereignty);

Mr. Toad, Wolf Larsen, Heidi, Phileas Fogg, Ichabod, Sherlock, Anne, Alice, Tweedledum, Tweedledee,
Jacob Marley, Dr. Moreau, Long John Silver: in what ways do such literary characters and their
distant cousins endure? How were these classics in dialogue with other canonical works? Were
authors like Wilde and Eliot--in texts like The Selfish Giant or Old Possum's Book of Practical
Cats--at liberty to engage the imagination in alternative ways in material purportedly "for
children"? Have mediated versions of such characters replaced the mythical divinities in the
"public imagination?" How can we engage critical, historical, linguistic, or dialectical analyses
