Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:52pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?

 On Miracle Ground XX

          The International Lawrence Durrell Society invites proposals for papers to be presented at a July 2018 conference in downtown Chicago. In a year marking the centenary of Solzhenitsyn’s birth and the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Durrell’s satirical dystopia Tunc, ILDS welcomes papers reflecting on modernist and postmodern writers or artists who challenged the political and cultural ideologies of their time and place. Interrogating conceptions of exile, survival, and dissent, we will explore how the work of these past intellectual dissidents has shaped our critiques of twenty-first century society.

Place, Displacement, and Memory in the Literature of Exile

Saturday, September 30, 2017

In his 1988 lecture “The Condition We Call Exile,” Joseph Brodsky said: “Whatever the proper name for these people [refugees, exiles, émigrés], whatever their motives, origins, and destinations, whatever their impact on the societies which they abandon and to which they come may amount to—one thing is absolutely clear: they make it very difficult to talk about the plight of the writer in exile with a straight face. Yet talk we must; and not only because literature, like poverty, is known for taking care of its own kind, but more because of the ancient and perhaps as yet unfounded belief that should the masters of this world be better read, the mismanagement and grief that make millions take to the road could be somewhat reduced.”
