ASCA International Workshop 2019
10 April - 12 April
Realities and Fantasies
Relations, Transformations, Discontinuities
10-12 April, Universiteit van Amsterdam
- Jonathan Culler (Cornell University): Fantasizing Narrators for Novels and Speakers for Poems
- Annabelle Dufourcq (RU Nijmegen): Do we have to be Realistic? The imaginary dimension of the real: a phenomenological approach to imagination, images and the imaginary field.
- Nkiru Nzegwu (SUNY Binghamton): Dancing the In-Between: The Immense Power of Madness
- Susanna Paasonen (University of Turku): Thinking Sex, Thinking Play
What are the contemporary ways in which reality and fantasy relate, how do they contrast, and how, under what conditions, can one transform into the other? In the workshop, artists and scholars from a range of approaches, cases, and places, discuss the kinship between realities and fantasies and its contemporary use.
Papers focus on love and desire in the time of tinder, AI, authenticity, narrative selves, enactment, transliminality, futurism, utopism, nationalisms, absurdity, oppressive regimes, trauma, ‘grotesque’ bodies, animal sanctuaries, magical realism, sound, intentionality, discovery between arts and science, and the normative use of art and literature. Next to paper presentations, there is an exhibition and a workshop performance.
Everyone is welcome to the keynotes and panels. To receive the abstracts of the panels in advance, please see more details on the programme, venues, and the keynote lectures on the website https://realitiesfantasies.wordpress.com/
