Disability in Modernist Literature

Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 3:32pm
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Combining disability and modernist studies, this panel engages in current discourses on disability in modernist texts. The modernist moment, marked by war trauma, advances in psychology, and eugenics, is a rich area of inquiry for disability theory. Recent disability theory argues that representing disability is an effort to engage with the unknowable, which we also see in the modernist preoccupation with connection. Papers may address representations of disability in modernist texts and/ or how authors negotiated their disabilities.

In his three volume study of technological historicity, Technics and Time, Bernard Stiegler contends that contemporary culture is characterized by the incessant technological exteriorization of our interiors. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sustain a constant and seemingly stable feed of our psychological maneuvers in a variety of media. But what happens when the words, photos, or sounds you just posted are subject to commentary, reframing, and sometimes deletion? This is precisely what occurs in online creative writing collaboration.

The Permanent Seminar on Poetry (SEMPER) organizes its fourth international conference devoted to the topic of “The Poetic Epistle”. It may seem that a poem in letter form has had a limited diffusion through literary history, but it has, on the contrary, been an important part of Western literary traditions since Latin poetry, where, from Lucilius to Catullus, and Horace, the Epistola was established as a poetic genre on its own.
