Alt-American (Oxford)

May 30, 2014 - May 31, 2014


Alt-American: Implausible History, Geography, Science, and Literature of Nineteenth-Century America is a conference about nineteenth-century American cultures that evaded description by the period’s dominant historical, geographic, scientific, and literary institutions, the forms that emerged as alternative to those institutions, and current critical methodologies that embrace and reproduce those implausible histories, etc. ‘Alt’ then refers both to cultural objects described and the systems describing them, both in the nineteenth century and in our contemporary moment.
