Technical Landscapes:

Aesthetics and the Environment in the History of Science and Art

Harvard University, April 6-8, 2017

 

Over the past century, land has become at once a technical and aesthetic object across art and science. On the one hand, scientific and technical programs have emerged—from the testing of atomic weapons in the American West to cobalt mining in the Congo—that occupy vast swaths of the planet. At the same time, new representational practices have emerged in contemporary art to critically engage land and its attendant politics by treating it as the site, theme, and medium of artistic inquiry.

Competing Traditions The 20th and 21st Century Irish Literatures between Realism and Experimentation (30 June-1 July 2017)

updated: 
Friday, February 3, 2017 - 8:52am
University of Lodz, Poland
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

The tension between realism and experimentation has marked the development of modern Irish literature, being intrinsic to the work of a number of major Irish writers. Often regarded as a father-figure of all experimental writing, James Joyce was attacked by as different commentators as Lukács and Pound for the scope and radicalness of experiment, particularly in Finnegans Wake. However, Joyce himself considered his work to be firmly set in the realist tradition. At a time when he was yet to publish his first collection of lyrics, W. B. Yeats was encouraged by his father to write realist prose, which may eventually have contributed to his abhorrence of realism in favour of ever more daring experimentation in verse writing.
