"Terrible Beauty" (April 15 -17, 2016) [Updated]

updated: 
Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - 1:08pm
University of Virginia

We take our title from W. B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916" to invite new takes on an old tune: the relation of aesthetics to politics. This three-day graduate conference at the University of Virginia, featuring poet Paul Muldoon as keynote speaker, will mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and invite fresh thinking about how art rises through its occasions.

Today it has become a commonplace within the academy that human artifacts—artistic or otherwise—be considered within the social and material contexts of their production. As Rita Felski has observed, "What word ["context"] could be more ubiquitous in literary and cultural studies: more earnestly invoked, more diligently defended, more devoutly kowtowed to?"
