Friday, November 24, 2017 –The Global Nineteenth-Century

The A19 workshop at Université Paris-Didérot-LARCA-UMR 8225 invites Dr. Mark STOREY, assistant professor at the University of Warwick, who will give a talk entitled :

“Local Color, World-System; or, American Realism at the Periphery.”

Dr. Storey teaches on the English and Comparative Literary Studies programmes.
His first book, Rural Fictions, Urban Realities: A Geography of Gilded Age American Literature (OUP, 2013), examined the effects of late nineteenth-century modernisation and urbanisation on the literary representation of rural America, and argued for a reconceptualisation of ‘American regionalism’.
His current research focuses on two areas: U.S. imperialism, and time studies. His project attempts to bring U.S. imperialism and time studies together by looking at the concept of ‘imperial time’ and how it relates to literary culture in America from the late 18th century to the present. Through this work, Dr. Storey is interested in classical reception in America, the philosophical and political uses of historical analogy, the place of the historical novel in American literary history, travel writing about the Mediterranean, and the racial/religious aspects of U.S. imperialism.

We will also discuss the turn to the global in ninetenth-century studies, especially among historians, with the recent publication of Histoire du monde au XIXe siècle, edited by Pierre Singaravélou et Sylvain Venayre (Fayard, 2017) in the wake of The Transformation of the World. A Global History of the Nineteenth by Jürgen Osterhammel (trad. Patrick Camiller), Princeton UP, 2014. What do we have to say about this globalization of nineteenth-century studies as literary scholars?
