Description

The study of literature and culture in Western universities has come to be dominated by identity politics. For this workshop we would like to propose that rather than reading literature through identity politics, we read identity politics through literature.Our aim would be to create a space for graduates in any field of literary and cultural study to engage in discussion of these issues which are crucial not only for our research as intellectuals but also for how we live as political and ethical subjects.
