The Space Between Society: Literature and Culture, 1914-1945
Providence, Rhode Island
June 14-16, 2012
Proposals invited that consider questions related to the study of material cultures 1914-1945. Please send abstracts (no more than 300 words) along with a short biographical statement to Tamar Katz and Claire Buck at email@example.com by 2 January 2012.
In the Space Between Society scholars studying literature, history, media, society, and culture between 1914 and 1945 exchange ideas about their approaches and their objects of study. This years conference addresses the varied material cultures that shape the world within which people live, work, and make art. We invite researchers to ask:
Which material practices shape this period and our knowledge about it?
What methods and assumptions must we bring to bear on the objects of our study?
What are the challenges of working on material culture and bringing such work into conversation with scholars in a range of fields?
Possible presentation or panel topics include:
Print and media culture
Museums and Exhibitions
Architecture and the built environment
The material culture of war
Anthropology and ethnography
Theorizing objects, things, and stuff
Theatre, performance, and embodiment
