Snsory Modernism(s) 2: Cultures of Perception

University of Leeds, 11th-12th December 2015

Sensory Modernism(s)#2 is a two-day interdisciplinary conference due to be held at the University of Leeds. The event, organised by the university’s Sensory Modernism(s) research group, follows the highly successful inaugural conference event held earlier this year.

The conference will seek to address the interrelationship of modernism with sensory perception. We invite abstracts proposals for twenty-minute papers which address this theme, but will welcome proposals which offer an alternative mode of presentation, such as films or performance art.

Papers may address, but are in no way limited to, the following topics and their relevance to the general scope of the conference:

  • Philosophy
  • Psychoanalysis
  • Cinematography
  • Radio
  • Medicine
  • Anthropology
  • Aesthetics
  • Linguistics
  • Literature and the marketplace
  • Animals
  • Sexuality

Abstracts of 200-300 words, with a brief bio of no more than 200 words, should be emailed to by 11th November  2015.

Conference Organisers: Georgina Binnie, Daniel Kielty, Andrew Moore and Crispian Neill.
