30/04/2019 – CFP: XXXI Annual Conference of Polish Association for American Studies

October 23-25, 2019, University of Opole, Poland

The Sound of Silence in American Literature, Culture and Politics

The thematic focus of the XXXI Annual Polish Association for American Studies conference falls on cadences of speech and silence in American literature, culture and politics. In its original signification captured by the 1964 Simon and Garfunkel song, “the sound of silence” stands not only for thwarted communication, inability of people to communicate, the dissonance between speech and silence, but also alternative, non-verbal means of communication, hinting at a whole myriad of possibilities that the original curse of silence does not immediately suggest.
