The topic of the one-day exploratory workshop is intended to tackle the question of the massive and long-ranging transformations overtaking the Anglo-American world in the course of the long nineteenth century, the twentieth century and today. We propose topics converging on the intersection of nature and economy (work, technology) as it informs and is informed by literature, film and television, that comes to decide the transatlantic and global modernity. We invite 15-minute presentations in English that would probe the historical and current concerns arising at the cusp of historical and social changes that define our late modernity.
