In the twentieth century, literary criticism took a turn from philology and historical approaches toward analyzing small, suggestive passages, using them as a microcosm that offered a fertile glimpse into the larger textual expanses of the text.  In the Soviet Union, this effort came to be denominated as Russian formalism; in France, the explication de texte; in the Anglophone world, the New Criticism practice of “close reading.”  In recent decades, this approach has fallen out of fashion, as politically motivated theoretical and critical modalities have become operative (cultural studies, post-colonialism, queer theory, etc.)  While these recent efforts surely constitute an enlargement of our knowledge and an advancement of our critical protocol

Many claim that the heyday of postcolonial studies has passed. Scholars have criticized the premises of postcolonial theory (Chibber), questioned the relevance of empire to British culture (Porter), and defended the legacy of British imperialism (Ferguson). Others have found postcolonial modes of analysis predictable or exhausted. New frameworks have arisen instead: global Anglophone, cosmopolitanism, the “new” world literature, and modernist studies with its temporal expansion into the contemporary. Yet, as Robert Young argues, the postcolonial has always been about what is unfinished, incomplete, and left over.

The Ernest Hemingway Society will sponsor two panels at the upcoming ALA Conference:

 

Ambulance Driver: Hemingway and the First World War

Panel: "Jacques Lacan and the Post-modernists"

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 12:52pm
Richard Schumaker & Julia Brühne / NeMLA's Annual Convention 2018, Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The panel will explore three questions: Is it possible to establish a precise relationship between Jacques Lacan and post-modernist literature in general? Can one isolate specific important themes in post-modernist literature and establish connections between these themes and Lacan? Focusing on the Oedipus conflict as it developed in Lacan, can one establish relationships between Lacan and post-modernist writers?

 

This panel has two underlying goals.
