Representations of 9/11

Deadline: September 30, 2006

Paper Details

CFP: Representations of 9/11 (UK) (03/17/07; 09/30/06) Call for papers for a one-day Interdisciplinary Conference hosted at University of Westminster, London, England.

The UK Network for Modern Fiction Studies in partnership with the University of Hull invites proposals for papers and panels for our Interdisciplinary "Representations of 9/11" Conference.

Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Prof. Peter Brooker, University of Nottingham

In an article in the New York Times, Michiko Katutani wrote that of the emergent artistic responses to 9/11, �Thus far, words alone have proved curiously inadequate as a means of testimony�.

In the aftermath of 9/11, many artists were called upon to express their views of the most appalling events that had just taken place. It was as if, more than most people, they might frame some response adequate to the moment: as artists with language, their linguistic responses might somehow achieve an expressive intensity capable of embodying or representing the events themselves and the feelings they generated. This raises the question of artistic responsibility and the role of the artist in relation to the pressure of momentous contemporary events.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • The problems of representation
  • The politics of representation
  • The role of the artist in relation to the momentous contemporary events
  • Iain Banks
  • Paul Auster
  • Don DeLillo
  • Glyn Maxwell
  • Frederic Beigbeder
  • Jonathan Safran-Foer
  • Art Spiegelman
  • Ken Loach
  • J.G. Ballard
  • 11'09''01 Film anthology
  • Will Self
  • David Hare
  • Martin Amis
  • Ian McEwan
  • Claire Tristram

We will be actively pursuing various publishing outputs related to the conference.

Send abstracts (no more than 250 words) for proposed 20 minute papers by 30th September 2006 to martyn.colebrook_at_english. hull.ac.uk. Please mark the subject of your email "Representations of 9/11 abstract". Alternatively, you can post your abstracts to Martyn Colebrook, Department of English, University of Hull, Cottingham Road, Hull, East Yorkshire, England HU6 7RX. Proposals for comprised panels of three speakers are also welcome.
