Call for Papers
Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the Department of German, Princeton University (May 12-13, 2022) in cooperation with the FWF-project “Co-operative Art Techniques” at the Center for Cultural Studies, University of Graz
The Automated Condition. Manifestations and Narratives in Art, Literature and Culture
Keynote by Joanna Zylinska, King's College London.
Moving within a variety of manifestations and narratives, this interdisciplinary graduate conference wishes to both connect and cross-pollinate historical case studies on automation with theoretical perspectives on the conditions it produces. Collectively, literature, art, and culture can provide vital points of entry into the interrogation of life in the automated condition, question whether it is truly a fatal form of passivity, and offer a nuanced and holistic understanding of its promises and its possibilities.
Deadline: December 1, 2021
