Oscillate: Metamodernism & the Humanities

Did I mention that I had popped along to this great wee conference at the Univeristy of Strathclyde (16/09/14)? Interesting to hear perspectives from the creative writing sphere, papers by Emma Sullivan and Craig Pollard being the highlights for me.

Here’s a Frieze Video:

What is metamodernism?

Philosophers Robin van den Akker and Timotheus Vermeulen talk about their concept of metamodernism, the waning of irony and the new forms of sincerity emerging in 21st century culture.

The Facebook page for the conference is here.
