Sense and the Senses / Le Sens et les sens: A Colloquium and Roundtable on Aesthetics, Sociology and Literature

Starts: Thursday, April 6, 2017,
Ends: Saturday, April 8, 2017, 12:00am

The annual Colloquium in 20th and 21st-Century French and Francophone Studies will take place at IUB, focusing on the connections between the sensorial and the intelligible dimensions of literature and art. CAHI’s support has enabled organizers to convene a roundtable of distinguished guests to discuss issues such as the affective turn in literary criticism and its implications for the study of the sensorial and material levels of literary and cinematic works, the connections and tensions between art and technique, idealist and materialist poetics, reception as re-imagining and meaning-making, and the political implications of a “sensorial” criticism.
