Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:41pm
Kim Wilkins and Wyatt Moss-Wellington (University of Sydney)

Spike Jonze is a celebrated director whose deeply philosophical film work crosses boundaries between studio and independent modes of production, genre entertainment and experimentalism. Jonze's oeuvre includes highly regarded feature films (Being John MalkovichAdaptationWhere the Wild Things Are and Her), commercials, music videos and shorts; he is also a prolific producer and actor. Across his work, Jonze investigates the vagaries of contemporary American culture with a particular interest in themes of identity fluidity, loss and grief, American celebrity cultures, storytelling and metacognition, nurturance and development, technology and surveillance, evolution and sociobiology, memory and fantasy.

Literary Architecture Revisited

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Following Ellen Eve Frank's Literary Architecture (1979), this panel seeks historically-situated papers that investigate the narrative capabilities of architecture, particularly lived-in architecture. Taking Frank's principle question of how architecture can embody consciousness within literature, this panel expands the scope of her analysis. Although the “spatial turn” in literary studies has produced a great response, its focus regarding architecture specifically as a constructed form that interprets a given space is somewhat lacking. This panel invites projects that work to close that gap and produce a discussion that maps out connections between constructed spaces and the self.
