Happiness: Enlightenment to PresentKing’s College, CambridgeSaturday, October 19 – Sunday, October 20, 2019 

The question of what makes us happy, let alone how to actually define happiness, has preoccupied writers and philosophers since the Ancient Greeks. Happiness has often been viewed with suspicion; be it located in another world, aligned with worldly dangers, or pictured as an endless pursuit symptomizing our fall from grace. From the Enlightenment onwards, however, writers begin to reinvent or reinvigorate the idea of happiness in new forms. Rather than scold ourselves out of expectation, happiness is viewed as a component of real quotidian life, as something we might learn to expect from our encounters with reality.

Lehigh University’s Department of English is thrilled to announce its annual Literature and Social Justice conference, “Performance and Social Justice,” to be held November 1-2, 2019 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. We welcome proposals from Master’s students, Ph.D. students, recent graduates, and independent scholars working on performance studies, broadly conceived. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of performance and social justice. What is the relationship between performance and justice? In what ways does a certain text/character/literary moment, etc. perform social justice? How can performance become a form of activism and/or advocacy?
