Kalamazoo 2011: "Rhetorical and Authoritative Uses of Aesthetics in Medieval Literature"

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 - 10:47pm
Michael Elam / Saint Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

This panel discussion will explore how aesthetics might be understood not only as an end in literary form/production, but also as a means by which medieval artists (poets, writers, illuminators, jewelers, smiths, etc.) attempted to establish a rhetorical or authoritative stance.

The session will examine aesthetics more as 'techne' than 'telos' (though not necessarily excluding the latter). I particularly seek contributions from scholars in areas outside of literary study, that is, from such disciplines as manuscript studies, art history, philosophy, and theology.

Presenters should present a brief (5-7 minutes) introduction of their work in this area. This will be followed by an open discussion between panel members and the audience.

Graduate Student Conference: Globalization and Aesthetics, December 3, 2010

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 - 5:58pm
The Postcolonial Studies Group of the Rutgers Department of English

Graduate Student Conference:
Globalization and Aesthetics

The recent global recession has reignited debates on the social, political and cultural implications of globalization. Though the term 'globalization' is most often used to describe processes associated with the rise of neoliberal economies across the globe, these structural changes are themselves embedded in much longer histories of colonization and exploitation on the one hand, and transnational and cross-cultural exchanges on the other. Scholars such as Gayatri Spivak, Edward Said, Stuart Hall, Fredric Jameson, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri have theorized globalization and mapped its complex histories and forms.
