AUTHORITY _VERSUS _ALTERITY: THE RETURN OF HEGEMONY?
This conference wishes to address the extant crisis as a landscape of cultural and aesthetic possibilities as well as of constraints and perils: how will financial instability affect the self-image of the Western world as well as its relationship with its many others?, how will fear and anxiety determine translatability both in a literal and in
a metaphorical sense?, what images and representations of identity and alterity will literature, film, TV, music produce at a time of distress and unrest?, how will the new-found desire for authority and authenticity articulate with the plurality of contemporary societies?
PAPERS ON THE FOLLOWING AREAS WILL BE WELCOME:
Culture and Representation
Film and Other Media
Peace and War Studies
Simon During, University of Queensland
João Ferreira Duarte, University of Lisbon
Ana Gabriela Macedo, University of Minho
Lawrence Venuti, Temple University Philadelphia
