MARKING THE EVENT

Keynote Address: Professor Michael Warner, Yale University

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:
The Event changes everything. And yet we have difficulty defining the
event. How do we theorize the transitory? As community members, we mark
events with ceremonies of celebration and mourning. As scholars, we
strive to leave our critical mark. Ultimately we must ask ourselves, do
we mark the event or does the event mark us?
