Jameson Symposium

On 8 August the CMSA will be holding an afternoon's Symposium on Fredric Jameson’s recent and provocative study of realism and the novel, The Antinomies of Realism (Verso, 2013). Sweeping in its historical scope and theoretical ambition, the book has been praised by Hal Foster as “vintage Jameson”.

Symposium Organiser: Conall Cash (UNSW)

The Symposium will comprise seven papers by Conall Cash (UNSW), Arka Chattopadhyay (UWS), Paul Dawson (UNSW), Kate Montague (UNSW), Julian Murphet (UNSW), Aaron Nyerges (Sydney), and Mark Steven (UNSW). These papers will critically appraise Jameson’s theory of the novel and extend his argument about realism to other genres and media, including the lyric poem and the television series. There will also be extended time for group discussion. The aim is to workshop our responses to this stimulating new work in a friendly and informal environment.

All are very welcome to the Symposium, and there is no need to register. Please also pass the invitation on to anyone who might be interested, especially Honours and postgraduate students.
