Scholars working under the broad umbrella of New Materialism have offered compelling reappraisals of the ways in which we know, interact with, and exist in the world. This scholarship also intersects with recent work on music and sound, which raises rich sets of questions regarding human agency, material, ethics, aesthetics, embodiment, and the subject/object dichotomy, among other issues.

The Work of the Artist: Sigma Tau Delta Regional Undergraduate Conference

Monday, July 29, 2019 - 2:38pm
Sigma Tau Delta/Mount St. Mary's University Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 31, 2019

This undergradaute conference seeks to examine the concept of labor in all of its forms: intellectual, artistic, physical, and otherwise. Our conference theme rises out of Sigma Tau Delta’s proposed common reading of the year, Tess Taylor’s Work and Days. This is, of course, a theme celebrated in literature through the ages.

For instance, in Robert Frost’s poem “The Death of the Hired Man,” Silas, the hired man, works one summer beside Harold Wilson, a boy home from college.  Silas believes if he could teach Harold to build a load of hay, “he’d be / some good perhaps to someone in the world. / He hates to see a boy the fool of books.”  This poem presents a tension between physical labor and intellectual labor.
