Terrible Beauty [Deadline Extended to 1/30/2016]

full name / name of organization: 
University of Virginia

We take our title from W. B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916" to invite new takes on an old tune: the relation of aesthetics to politics. This three-day graduate conference at the University of Virginia, featuring poet Paul Muldoon as keynote speaker, will mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and invite fresh thinking about how art rises through its occasions.

Today it has become a commonplace within the academy that human artifacts—artistic or otherwise—be considered within the social and material contexts of their production. As Rita Felski has observed, "What word ["context"] could be more ubiquitous in literary and cultural studies: more earnestly invoked, more diligently defended, more devoutly kowtowed to?"

In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.

----
When is a text an impostor? When does it speak with a monstrous voice? How is authority conferred to texts? At what point does an imposition become a keystone text? How does a field change in relation to these emerging impositions? Is the revolutionary already normative? Is it possible to answer these questions within a developing field of study? How do you situate the individual vis-à-vis a field?
