School of English, University of Leicester, UK

Following on from two hugely successful recent conferences, the 2010 School of English postgraduate conference at the University of Leicester will address concepts of personal territory, in any of its manifestations. A sense of personal belonging, or 'home',

In the wake of the digital revolution and globalisation policies the whole world is witnessing formation of certain conditions which are having and will continue to have tremendous impact on the production, reproduction, access, dissemination and appreciation of visual arts.

Global Financial Capital and New Realisms

updated: 
Thursday, November 19, 2009 - 2:39pm
ACLA Annual Meeting at New Orleans

The recent economic crisis coincides with flourishing of new realism across different media in Europe and North America [Frazen's The Corrections in literature (2001), Audaird's The Prophet (2008) in film, Simon and Burns' The Wire (2002-2008) in television]. This realism distinguishes itself by an extensive preoccupation with poverty, migration, crime and urban violence while it stylistically appropriates violence as a commentary on the disposability of bodies under neo-liberal economy. The time seems ripe to explore what kind of realism is being produced in our historical moment. This seminar explores the prospects and limits of realism as a narrative mode that reflects on the contemporary capitalism, its trajectory, moments of crisis and recovery.
