Event description
The Australasian Association for Literature 2022 conference: ‘1922 Turned Upside Down’.

About this event

The year 1922 has long been celebrated as an annus mirabilis of literary and, more broadly, of cultural production, the high-water mark of “high modernism”. One hundred years on, this conference seeks to reconsider this established view. Beyond the literary works usually cited as defining 1922 – James Joyce’s Ulysses, T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land and Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room – what other significant works appeared that year in literature, film, music, architecture, and the visual arts? What did 1922 mean for the arts in places, cultures, and languages beyond those of the Anglophone North Atlantic? And how does expanding our scope in these ways challenge our understanding of that famous year? At the same time, this conference aims to assess the value of choosing a single calendar year as a historical and critical category. How, for instance, might attention to marginalised forms of cultural production across the globe change how we think about time and history with regards to modernism?
