Graduate Symposium on Creativity, Transformation and Public Life
This symposium seeks to explore the connections between disciplinarity, creativity and subjectivity; what do our disciplines "discipline?" Is there a relationship between what we study, the methods we use, the shape our creativity takes on and the kind of corporeal, ethical and political subjects we become? Our wager is that the answer is yes, but that claim will be open to debate and elaboration across three Wednesday morning meetings (food and drink included).
At this session, James Watts (Religion) and Stephanie Shirilan (English) will lead a discussion of reading as disciplinary bodily practice, and composer and psychologist Paola Marquez will integrate a presentation on her work on practice and transformation beyond the limits of textuality.
