(An)Aesthetic of Absence
University of Toronto, March 8-10, 2012
Keynote Addresses by J. Hillis Miller (University of California, Irvine)
and Rebecca Comay (University of Toronto)
The 23rd annual conference of the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto will be held from March 8-10, 2012, and will focus on the concept of "Absence": the aesthetics, ethics, and politics of that which is not present. Following from last year's conference, "Iconoclasm," we now consider not that which has been broken, but that which is simply—and yet profoundly—absent.
