Oscillate: Metamodernism & the Humanities

Did I mention that I had popped along to this great wee conference at the University 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.
