Cultures of Control – The First Dialogues

This symposium is the inaugural event of a series of workshops and symposia organized by the “Cultures of Control” network established by Frida Beckman at Stockholm University in 2015. Outlining and interrogating central theoretical and cultural engagements with conceptions of control society, this event features Gregg Lambert (Syracuse University), Jeffrey T. Nealon (Penn State University), and Gregory Flaxman (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) who will speak about control in relation to literature, music, and film respectively and deliberate on these topics with David Watson (Uppsala University), Ulf Olsson, and Jakob Nilsson (both Stockholm University).
