Excursions Journal

"Purity is the power to contemplate defilement." – Simone Weil

"Purity is a negative state and therefore contrary to nature." – William Faulkner

"Throughout human history, the apostles of purity, those who have claimed to possess a total explanation, have wrought havoc among mere mixed-up human beings." – Salman Rushdie

PURITY is a division, a concept, a value-system, a fallacy, an ideal state, a doctrine, a transfer. It marks the territories of sex and contamination, mathematics and martyrdom, economy and resistance, music and annihilation.

April 18-19 Purdue Early Atlantic Reading Group Colloquium

updated: 
Monday, December 10, 2012 - 1:14pm
Purdue Early Atlantic Reading Group

During Captain Cook's 1769 transoceanic voyage, he collected a rust fungus in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. That rust fungus was carried around the globe until it returned across the Atlantic and the American midwest to arrive at Purdue University's herbarium where it remains to this day. The journey this rust fungus took reflects the global nature of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, full of circulations between continents and islands, specimens and texts, peoples and cultures. Purdue's Early Atlantic Reading Group invites you to celebrate this interconnectedness through a graduate student colloquium exploring the material and miscellany, pictures and people, literatures and locations of the early Atlantic world.
