Seminar 63: Textual Production and Reception under 20th-Century Censorship

This seminar seeks to connect scholars working in the field of 20th-century censorship in both
English and Anglophone literatures. Intending to explore the spectrum of defiance and
conformity in textual production and transmission (also via translation), it invites proposals
concerned with, among other topics, political or religious patronage and control, canon
inclusion and exclusion, international backing and interference, or censorship evasion via
transnational collaborations, clandestine publishing and circulation. The seminar means to further our understanding of both apparent and hidden practices of textual authorization and
control and the bearing these may have on canonicity and subsequent influence.
