The Ninth Annual Red River Conference on World Literature

North Dakota State University, Fargo

April 21-23, 2006

 

This proposed panel will examine the ways in which the writer/survivor negotiates his or her role in narrating the Holocaust. As Charlotte Delbo tells her reader in the headnote to her three-volume trilogy, Auschwitz and After, "Today I am not sure that what I wrote is true. I am certain it is truthful." Thus for a writer such as Delbo, the purpose of testimony is both to convey personal experience and to commemorate silenced voices.

Appalachia was, and remains, one place where Americans' thoughts go when they have to re-think what it means to be American. Whether it is understood as the First Frontier, the original Old West, or an Eden infested with the snakes of race, class, and violence, Appalachia offers exceedingly fertile ground for popular and scholarly investigation.

 

Presentations covering a broad range of Appalachian culture are welcome, as are thematic panels composed of three to four presentations. Topics may include:

At University of Hull, England
Saturday 20 May 2005 9am to 5pm
Keynote speaker: Professor Cora Kaplan, Southampton University

This conference will reassess the stereotypes of the grim North and the

With a view to making visible the North of England as a significant
trope as well as a vibrant location for literature from the most
contemporary to the nineteenth century, this conference will challenge
the destructive stereotypes of the North which appear to be gaining
momentum.
