[UPDATE] The Task of the Critic: March 25-26, 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 4:25pm
full name / name of organization: 
Yale University
contact email: 

What is at stake when we read a text? What do we mean when we call ourselves literary critics or practitioners of critical theory, literary theory, or men and women of letters? This conference calls out to those who practice close reading and invites them to reflect on what happens in the critical moment of reading. We are preoccupied with the question of the status of the material produced by the reader of texts. What is the task of the writer of "secondary literature"? Beyond questions of a particular critic's adherence to a given methodological approach, what does it mean to suggest that the critic has a calling?
