2006; 22 – 24 February 2007)

The Thirty-fifth Annual 20th-Century Literature and Culture Conference
University of Louisville
22 - 24 February 2007

The years between the early 1950s and the mid 1960s witnessed a strange
rich after-blooming of literary Modernism. An impressive array of new
works—striking in conceptual scope and ambitious in narrative
experimentation—signaled that the search for bold fictional forms had by
no means died out with what was once called "High Modernism":

After putting together some terrific MLA panels on this subject,
we're inviting additional authors to contribute to a volume on the
depictions of age in the media. The working title is

Aging and Staging

Theorists argue that age is a performative construction, which is
nowhere more evident than on the stage and screen. This volume will
examine the performance of age in theatre, film, television, and
other media. These are among many possible questions that
contributors may choose to consider:

What's a Woman to Do: Mothering in a Post-Apocalyptic World : By its cultural definition, motherhood is a role that requires one to act as a caretaker, to provide a safe and sustaining environment, to enable the next generation's well-being. But to live in a post-apocalyptic world suggests that the environment has become hostile to life, destroying the possibility of a future and hope of regeneration.
   
  This panel explores how does post-1950s fiction present the mother figure within the conditions of a post-apocalyptic world? Potential approaches may include: Ecocritical Readings, Feminist Theory, Psychoanalytical Theory, and Cultural Studies.
