Session Description:

After the cultural turn, the philosophical return? In the last decade, we appear to have made a return to the field of interaction between philosophy and literature. In this field, American pragmatists remain, but new players have been added, ranging from aesthetics to animal studies, network theory, and object-oriented ontology. Have we made a philosophical return? And if so, why, what, how?
