392. Aesthetics in/and Minority Discourse

Friday, 10 January, 5:15–6:30 p.m., Chicago D, Chicago Marriott

A special session

Presiding: Sangeeta Ray, Univ. of Maryland, College Park

Speakers: Kandice Chuh, Graduate Center, City Univ. of New York; Jacqueline D. Goldsby, Yale Univ.; Fred Moten, Duke Univ.; José Muñoz, New York Univ.; Sandra K. Soto, Univ. of Arizona

Session Description:

We will address how the aesthetic articulates minority discourse, complicating the relations among art, representation, ethics, and politics. Bringing together aesthetic theories and philosophies with minority discourse reinvigorates difference as such and provides a means of engagement with practices that produce a richer understanding of life, culture, and politics.


Subject:

  • Comparative Literature – Twentieth Century
