>The Sublime experience has a long anxiety of influence in the Western
>Tradition. Now, in both the modernist and postmodern traditions, scholars have
>associated the Sublime with nihilism, Cold War paranoia, the computer,
>television, and even Micky Mouse.  But the question remains  is the Sublime
>viable in the postmodern world?  If Disneyland is indeed Sublime, can the
>Sublime be anything but parody and failure?  Can our technocracy be Sublime as
>it speeds global warming, or is that extent of power the definition of
>Sublime?  Where do we stand in relationship to this ancient literary ethos?
>
>Please send short abstracts (300-700 words) to 
>[log in to unmask] by April 24,
