Poetry has been a continuous presence in the realm of philosophy. While the conflation often engendered poetic synchronization to the epistemic and aesthetic concerns of philosophy the cross-currents also opened up interesting instances of dissent. The resultant proliferation of ideas gave impetus to 'other' readings of poetry parallel to its traditional nuance. This volume seeks scholarly and original essays that take into account philosophy's engagement with poetry that goes back to Plato and Aristotle, and is a continuing imperative in the philosophical paradigms of Kant, Hegel, Rousseau, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Jean-Luc Nancy, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Bakhtin, Heidegger, Sartre, Blanchot, Derrida, Adorno, Agamben and others.
Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?

In recent years, scholars from a range of disciplines have considered how concepts such as 'family' and 'the home' can be used to understand and explore the wider structures of medieval society. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together researchers from across the Humanities, in order to consider these approaches and to identify new avenues for the study of family life in the medieval world.
