Het is tegenwoordig normaal dat schrijvers op radio of televisie vertellen over hun nieuwste boek. Maar hoe ontstond die traditie? Jeroen Dera dook de omroeparchieven in om vroege literatuurprogramma’s op de Nederlandse radio (1923-1940) en televisie (1951-1975) te ontdekken. Daarbij stuitte hij op bijna 2000 radio-boekenhalfuurtjes en ruim 250 literaire televisieprogramma’s.

SMART Lecture – Marco Caracciolo (Ghent): Narrative Beyond Anthropocentrism: Embodying the Nonhuman http://www.oslit.nl/smart-lecture-marco-caracciolo-ghent-narrative-beyond-anthropocentrism-embodying-nonhuman/ Tue, 09 May 2017 18:30:47 +0000 http://www.oslit.nl/?p=5477 12 May 2017
Narrative is a practice geared toward what psychologist James J. Gibson called the “intermediate world”—that is, the human-scale world of everyday perception. One of the upshots of this idea is that storytelling has, in Monika Fludernik’s (1996, 13) term, an “anthropomorphic bias.” It is not just that narrative understanding is embodied, as psychologists and psycholinguists have persuasively shown; at a very fundamental level, narrative implies human forms of embodiment.

Summer School – Posthuman Ethics in the Anthropocene http://www.oslit.nl/5465-2/ Tue, 09 May 2017 09:47:09 +0000 http://www.oslit.nl/?p=5465 21-25 August 2017 | The field of posthuman scholarship is in full expansion. The posthuman turn is triggered by the convergence of anti-humanism on the one hand and anti-anthropocentrism on the other. Anti-humanism focusses on the critique of the Humanist ideal of ‘Man’ as the universal representative of the human, while anti-anthropocentrism criticizes species hierarchy and advances ecological justice.
