Concussions, Commotions, and Other Aesthetic Disorders

November 20-21, 2014

Rosenwald Hall, Room 405

Graduate Conference of the Department of English Language and Literature

What happens to composition, interpretation, critique, and other modes of aesthetic production when their motivating impulse is less to organize and structure than to sense disorder? The event will include a keynote lecture by Claudia Rankine and a public conversation conducted by 3CT fellow Lauren Berlant, the George M. Pulman Distinguished Service Professor of English at the University of Chicago.
