Contemporary Critical Performances of the Authorial Role

Date: 27-28 November 2014 Time: 27 Nov 12:00-18:00; 28 Nov 09:30-13:00

Venue: Lancaster University - room tbc

How have new media technologies and the enhanced reproduction of visual and aural performances that they facilitate affected the contemporary practice of authorship? Our interactive research event is conceived as a performance and exercise in critical self-reflection in its own right. The academic papers examine literary authors' critical engagement with ideas of authority in both the text and its hyperlinked context. They will be delivered alongside conversation papers with creative practitioners. A workshop that further explores the position of the academic author and critic in society will stimulate further thought on how creative critical self-reflection might inform scholarly practice.

Confirmed speakers:Timothy Brennan (Professor in English and Professor in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature, Minnesota), Cornelia Graebner (Lecturer in Hispanic Studies, Lancaster),Gary Hall (Professor of Media and Performing Arts, Coventry), Diana Holmes (Professorof French, Leeds),Alejandro Rejes (Author)
