ON DIFFICULTY

Keynote Speaker: Lisa Lowe
Professor of Comparative Literature University of California, San Diego

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Difficulty both privileges and excludes. As scholars, critics,
students, and educators, we struggle with difficulty and we flirt with
it. We revel in it and we strive to master it. At crucial times, we
even resist it. While difficult language and concepts can elevate a
conversation or expand a critical discourse, difficulty also erects
barriers and creates lines of division that are both literal and
experiential.
