International Conference, November 13-15, 2014 at the University of Poitiers, France

Co-sponsors: FORELL, Université de Poitiers, and REMELICE, Université d'Orléans

"Pastoral's ancient and universal appeal – to come away – requires new examination in an age in which there is no away" (Glen A. Love. Practical Ecocriticism: Literature, Biology, and the Environment).

We cannot doubt that animals both love and practice music. That is evident. But it seems their musical system differs from ours. It is another school… We are not familiar with their didactic works. Perhaps they don't have any. (attributed to Erik Satie by John Cage. Silence)

[UPDATE] [REVISED] The Economies of Future Past: Redefining the Space(s) of (Post)Memory - March 13 and 14, 2014

updated: 
Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 4:14pm
English Graduate Students' Society at Université de Montréal

Deadline: January 6, 2014.

In a world of instant news updates, Wikipedia, and Twitter, memory seems a thing of the past. This instantaneity shapes the way we consider knowledge. In recent years, the rise of digital technology and communication has generated debates around global movements and this has shaped the way the past is recuperated into historical memory. The recent turn to archival memory in both theoretical discourses and artistic practices suggests a need to develop a new set of conceptual, literary, and aesthetic tools with which to understand, interpret, and problematize notions of the past and of memory.
