“Narrating Lives” - International Conference on Storytelling, (Auto)Biography and (Auto)Ethnography28-29 August 2020 - Malta

organised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

Life-history approach occupies the central place in conducting and producing  (auto)biographical and (auto)ethnographic studies through the understanding of self, other, and culture. We construct and develop conceptions and practices by engaging with memory through narrative, in order to negotiate ambivalences and uncertainties of the world and to represent (often traumatic) experiences.

ON-LINE CONFERENCE

CFP:

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

    Our first conference on racism, nationalism and xenophobia took place in March 2016. The second adition was held in June 2017. We hosted over 80 scholars representing universities and research institutions from all over the world.

The Futurist Inflection of British and American Modernism

City streets were a primary setting for modernity in Futurist art and literature.  The “Founding Manifesto” depicts a group of young men who, galvanized by the intrusive noises of trams and “hungry automobiles,” are finally able to articulate the principles of the new movement, and, to cite an example from the visual arts, Boccioni’s “The Street Enters the House” was a prominent work in the 1912 Paris and London exhibitions of Futurist painting.  In keeping with this year’s MSA “streets” theme, this panel seeks papers that consider the influence of Futurist art and literature on British and American literary modernism.

Dust storms. Flooding.  The fear of nuclear fallout.  While literary critics associate American authors of the 1930s and 40s with leftist political and economic thought, they often ignore concern in the period’s literature and other cultural works with major environmental crises.  In my forthcoming book, The Green Depression: American Ecoliterature of the 1930s and 40s (U of Miss. Press, Oct. 2020), I identify ways that depression-era literature contributed to shifts in conservationist thought during the period that would lay the groundwork for the development of environmental thought in the second half of the 20th century.
