Literature, Art and Culture in an Age of Global Risk.

Cardiff University, UK

CALL FOR PAPERS: Literature, Art and Culture in an Age of Global Risk - 
An international, Interdisciplinary Conference. What are the cultural 
implications of living under conditions of global, manufactured risk? In 
the twentieth century, the possibility arose for the first time that a 
crisis of planetary proportions might result from human activities. By 
the early decades of the century, global economic and financial 
interdependence was such that a crisis unfolding in one location could 
radiate outwards to destabilize the entire socio-economic world-system.

This conference will explore how writers, artists, filmmakers, 
dramatists, philosophers, and critical and cultural theorists have 
responded to the prospect and reality of global crisis.
