Cosa: Conferenza “Machines / Ravines: Negotiating the [Technological] Sublime”

Quando e dove: 14-16 settembre 2017, dept. of American Literature, University of Łódź (PL)

Deadline: 31 marzo 2017

Tema e obiettivi: la discussione verte sull’articolazione della nozione di Sublime, a partire dal contesto originale del Romanticismo fino alla letteratura contemporanea e alle tecnologie. L’idea, in breve – brevissimo -, è provare a vedere il Viandante sul mare di nebbia come un selfie. In pratica alcuni spunti possono essere:

  • Technological and/or spiritual negotiations of the sublime in novels, poetry or plays
  • Comparative sublimes
  • Science fiction, futurity and the sublime
  • [En]Gendering the sublime
  • [Mis]Uses of technology in literature
  • New literary genres
  • Death/violence and/of the sublime
  • Ecology, pastoral and the sublime
  • Performativity/theatricality and/of the sublime

Vi sarà inoltre David E. Nye, Professor of History alla University of Southern Denmark, come keynote speaker. Tra le sue opere American Technological Sublime (1994), Narratives and Spaces: Technology and the Construction of American Culture (1997), Technology Matters: Questions to Live With (2006).

Come proporsi: inviare abstract di 300 parole e CV con affiliazione e contatti a Mark Tardi (turlepin@yahoo.com) e Krzysztof Majer (krzymajer@gmail.com); specificare eventuali supporti audio/video richiesti; prevedere un talk di 20 minuti + 10 di discussione
