This one-day event seeks to explore how the self is represented, reimagined and reconfigured in a range of practices across the arts, humanities and social sciences. We seek to engage academics, writers and artists as researchers of their own and/or others’ practices in ideas related to narratives of the self. We also welcome contributions that explore the articulation of self in relation to teaching and research in Higher Education.

The complicated politics of American modernism has been the subject of countless essays and monographs. From the groundbreaking works of Raymond Williams and Frederic Jameson to Alan Filreis’s studies of American modernism in Modernism from Left to Right and Counter-Revolution of the Word, the central contradictions between the radical poetics of American modernists and their sometimes profoundly conservative political views, have been a source of great critical productivity.
