Video presentation by Thomas Ernst on “Literature as Subversion” (23:50 min.)
Not least because of its 40th anniversary and the commemoration of the host University’s name patron, Carl von Ossietzky, the University of Oldenburg has organized a conference “Resistance. Subjects, Representations, Contexts”. The conference will explore phenomena of resistance in different historical and contemporary contexts from an interdisciplinary and transcultural perspective in order to add to a theoretical debate on the term and concept(s) of resistance. Invited speakers are Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (New York), Maria do Mar Castro Varela (Berlin), Alex Demirovic (Berlin), Sabine Hess (Göttingen), Micha Brumlik (Berlin), Jens Martin Gurr (Duisburg-Essen), Rainer Winter (Klagenfurt) and others.
