The City as Modernist Ephemera
One day colloquium exploring the tensions arising out of the ephemeral and eternal aspects of the 'modernist city' through spaces, works, events, artefacts and people

The School of Arts and Creative Industries at London South Bank University (LSBU) will host a one-day interdisciplinary colloquium. The modernist city emphatically encapsulates the dialectic of the ephemeral and the eternal. Its dynamic flows of goods, people, and commerce at once determine the city’s transitory nature while at the same time reinforce its status as an immutable seat of power and culture attested to by the very materiality built up within and around such dynamic flows. Prompted by such questions, this colloquium invites proposals that will explore the myriad city-borne arts, objects, practices, and movements that typify the ephemeral and eternal dialectic.

Confirmed speaker: Dr Nathan Waddell, Asst. Professor in Literary Modernism (Nottingham).

Deadline for proposals: 25th February 2017.
