Friday April 27-Saturday April 28: "Interiorities: Reflecting Subjectivity and Sociality."
This is the first annual Duke-Stanford graduate student conference. It will be held this year at Stanford.
Cosponsored by the Center for Philosophy, Arts, and Literature at Duke University.
This conference will bring together doctoral students and scholars from both coasts to reflect on how social life conditions the formation, exposure, and expression of selfhood, while playing close attention to the irreducible features of subjective experience. Through a series of panel discussions, lectures, and a reading session, we hope to encourage the dialogue between disciplines across the humanities and interrogate art forms and discursive modes that bring into focus the meeting of subjects and worlds.
