Spaces of Expression and Repression in Post-Millennial North-American Literature and Visual Culture.” The conference will take place in Lublin, Poland, on 7-8 April 2016.

Topics may include, but are not limited to the following:
•language as a source and tool of oppression and empowerment

•mind: creativity and trauma, denial and repressed memory

•emotional abuse, power, and control relationships
•spaces of confinement: prisons, war zones, refugee camps
•surveillance: panopticons and spaces of control
•political repression and persecution: totalitarianism, autocracy, dictatorship, despotism
•representations of post-millennial watersheds (9/11, Enron, John Jay Report, crisis of 2008)
•new forms of narrative expression (blogs, fan fiction, Twiterature)
•text as an interactive space: ergodic literature, hypertext, cybertext
•video games and virtual worlds as spaces of expression and repression
•cross- and trans-media dialogues (expressing image through text and text through image)

Confirmed keynote speakers:
Prof. Stefan Brandt, Karl-Franzens-Universität, Graz, Austria
Prof. Pawel Frelik, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland

Selected presenters will be invited to participate in a joint book project to be published by Peter Lang in 2017.
