Symposium: Poetics Versus Philosophy: Life, Artifact, and Theory
Apr 11, 2013 - Apr 13, 2013 8 - 11 PM
Grand Stafford Theatre, Bryan, TX
Poets from 15 countries read their work 8 - 11 PM. Saturday, April 13 at the Grand Stafford Theater, Bryan -- sponsored by Advent GX. Open to public.
The Department of Hispanic Studies, along with the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas will host a three-day symposium titled Poetics Versus Philosophy: Life, Artifact, and Theory on April 11-13, 2013.
Since Plato, the controversy between poetry and the philosophical project has been legendary, repeated in multiple variations throughout history until the present day. This initial antagonistic gesture by the ancient philosopher against poets, can perhaps lead us to expand our range of reflection about crucial topics today, regarding for example; the semantic and syntactic mysteries of artistic and scientific artifacts, or the imaginary value that dwells within theoretical speculation. Creating an interdisciplinary dialogue between fields such as art and architecture, philosophy, political and natural sciences, poetical and literary studies is unavoidable. The unresolved ancestral conflict between poetry and rational knowledge must be restated in the XXI Century, and serve as a metaphor around which this symposium is conceived.
Marjorie Perloff – Keynote Speaker
Invited Speakers: Charles Bernstein, Ida Vitale, Robert Anthony Siegel
