ACLA: Forms of Floods. Submission Deadline November 13

updated: 
Saturday, October 24, 2009 - 9:09pm
Joseph Jeon/University of San Diego, Benjamin Widiss/Princeton University

Floods represent chaos: the overwhelming not just of everyday life but of entire prevailing natural and social orders, the destruction of boundaries and moorings, the triumph of formlessness and flux. This seminar examines, then, the challenges — both formal and ethical — entailed in representing floods. We will investigate the technical modes that attempt to formulate something often defined against form itself, and, at the same time, the moral implications of rendering natural disaster aesthetically. We will further ask what parallels and divergences we might discern between attempts to reassert form rhetorically, and those to reassert social and physical structures, in floods' wake.
