Our Monsters, Ourselves
Following the line of thought that societies' monsters in many ways define them, "Our Monsters, Ourselves" hopes to open the discussion of the ways monsters in contemporary North American Anglophone fiction and film have come to represent the tacit panics, problems and pleasures of their specific historical moment. Papers representing work explaining monster/moment dialectics ranging from Steven King's 1989 "The Dark Half" to the contemporary Twilight and True Blood series will be read with equal interest. 200-400 word abstract to ourmonstersourselves@gmail.com by September 15th.

Contemporary British Fiction: Narrating Violence, Trauma and Loss (International Conference, 17-18 September 2010)

updated: 
Monday, September 7, 2009 - 2:48am
Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany

Contemporary British fiction is preoccupied with scenarios of violence, trauma and loss: destruction, guilt, traumatic experiences and apocalyptic anxieties are prevalent thematic and aesthetic concerns that seem to be related to incisive and far-reaching political events. With the postmodern fascination with fragmentation and the dissolution of meaning on the wane, the preoccupation with physical and psychological collapse has prompted some critics to postulate the 'traumatological' (Philip Tew) nature of contemporary writing and to detect a post-millennial aesthetic of responsibility and conscience. These trends and tendencies have been identified, but have not yet received due (and differentiated) critical attention.
