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

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.

The President's Ghost: A Hauntology of Democracy. MLA 2011 (Los Angeles 1/6-9)

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 - 4:25pm
A Special Session (subject to MLA approval)

Presidents of the United States and presidential candidates have a long history of "writing" autobiographies which skillfully enact and construct a piece of political theater. The public's complicity in desiring a "war hero" president enables such posturing. However, the political performance ultimately becomes restrictive and the public becomes confused when the president or candidate betrays expectations. The politician's desire to manipulate inauthentic portrayals is itself subject to contradiction.
