CFP "Realism's Mixed Modes" German Studies Association 2010, Oakland, California

Realism's Mixed Modes

Eric Downing has pointed out, in his book _Double Exposures_, that realism continues to be viewed as a "heavily normed discourse or style, that purports to universal, transparent, natural, and ahistorical status, and the simultaneously and necessarily excludes or represses both self-consciousness and otherness. Katherine Kearns has also written that realism is "often charged with blindsiding social, political, and epistemological complexities, with throwing its considerable materialistic weight against all that would challenge or suborn the status quo."

Writings of Intimacy in the Twentieth and Twenty-first Centuries, 10th - 12th Sept, 2010

Thursday, January 14, 2010 - 8:37am
Dept. of English and Drama, Loughborough University, UK

Confirmed keynote speakers:
Adam Phillips (UK)
Professor Leo Bersani (USA)

This conference seeks to explore the significance of intimacy in and for the writings of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Our most intimate relationships are those which can powerfully define and nurture us, hurt and grieve us. Yet intimacy is not necessarily confined to those we know well: it is possible between strangers. and is not always conditional upon a personal relationship existing between the subjects involved. There are, indeed, intimate ways of behaving towards others which involve acts of violence, such as torture and rape.
