Registration for the GLITS Goldsmiths Literature Seminar Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Research Conference, is open. Admission is free.

The second annual conference is to be held at Goldsmiths College in London, UK, Saturday 26 June 2010. The keynote speaker is Christopher Norris.

The focus of the event this year is paradox, the strange territory between reason and intuition, involving the simultaneous processes of grasping and letting go of the doxa.

As an apparently absurd set of contradictions or oppositions entailing one another, paradox works within and between texts in an infinite number of ways, fascinating thinkers and writers from a variety of disciplines, locations and points in history. This interdisciplinary research conference will offer fresh perspectives on the intersection between paradox and text; how paradox can be deployed in writing; and potential ways it could be harnessed for theoretical or creative gain.

To register for this free post-graduate conference, email paradox-glits@gold.ac.uk
