OXFORD ENGLISH GRADUATE CONFERENCE 3 JUNE 2016: PROGRESS

'When any real progress is made, we learn and unlearn anew what we thought we knew before.'
(Henry David Thoreau)

Throughout history the complex and contested idea of progress has held wide-ranging implications for literature and literary criticism. We see the meanings and consequences of progress translated across world literature, from The Pilgrim's Progress to the Futurist Manifesto; Renaissance Humanism to the Post-Human; from colonialism to postcolonial literature and theory.

Faulkner and Money, July 23-27, 2017

Saturday, February 6, 2016 - 4:49pm
Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha conference (Jay Watson, director)

To gain a fuller understanding of William Faulkner's literary career and fictional oeuvre, a reader could do worse than to follow the proverbial money. Faulkner delighted in the intricate maneuverings of financial transactions, from poker wagers, horse trades, and auctions to the seismic convolutions of the New York Cotton Exchange. Moreover, whether boiling the pot with magazine stories, scraping by on advances from his publishers, flush with cash from Hollywood screenwriting labors, or basking in financial security in the wake of the Nobel Prize, Faulkner was at every moment of his personal and professional life thoroughly inscribed within the economic forces and circumstances of his era.

'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)
