Adam Karr / Department of English and Philosophy, West Point

The Department of English and Philosophy at West Point will host an interdisciplinary symposium to consider the relation of the material text to the formation and function of states and state-like structures. In particular, we seek to investigate the methods and effects of state and institutional manipulation of textual materialities to create, control, or shape responses. We welcome abstracts that consider texts from the oral ancient to the digital contemporary.

Keynote speaker: Michael F. Suarez, S.J. (University Professor and Director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, Member of the National Council on the Humanities).
