Modalities: Politics and Poetics, 18-19 Sept 2015

full name / name of organization: 
Rice University English Graduate Symposium
contact email: 
submissions@modalities2015.com

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look “outside,” we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?
