Lifework Symposium

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventPublic lecture/debate/seminar


'Lifework' aims to rethink categories such as the alter-ego, the detail, self-making, the psychical, interiority, narration and the production of subjectivity. Proust did much to reverse the conventions of the autobiographical genre, the narrator claiming, for instance, that writing only really began at the end of La Recherche. Given the failure of the biographical as an interpretative model, why does the diaristic continue to hold our attention, and what is it to envisage a small politics of the everyday?
