"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
John Muir

We live in a time of crisis in our homes and in our natural environment. From hurricanes to oil spills, we are linked to each other through the loss and degradation of regional and national habitats. Our selfhoods and the place we make for ourselves in the world are ultimately rooted in both our biological and ecological families.

The Pedestal and its Mediations

Department of Comparative Literature, University of Montreal

The Department of Comparative Literature at University of Montreal 's annual conference will be held on March 2nd and 3rd. This event primarily aims at establishing a stimulating forum of discussion, drawing on interdisciplinarity, allowing the exchange between graduate students from diverse backgrounds. The conference will be devoted to the pedestal and the implications and problematics underlying this figure. Intermediary between the objet consecrated and its consecrators, the pedestal is the locus and the pretext of a singular mediation between the work of art and the world, the artist and his spectators, the writer and his readers.

Leslie Shortlidge/The Kirwan Institute
