On Saturday, April 5, the Program in Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester presents, “Casting Doubt,” an interdisciplinary graduate student conference. Conference events begin at 8:30 am and will conclude at 5:45 pm. All conference panels and the conference keynote address will be held in Hoyt Auditorium on the University of Rochester campus. The conference is free and open to the community. No registration is required.
Professor Eduardo Cadava, English, Princeton University
“Palm Reading: Fazal Sheikh’s Handbook of Death.”
Responding both to an official cultural climate which vehemently chastises voices of dissent, and to a growing intellectual interest in emotional experiences of all kinds, “Casting Doubt,” seeks to pry open and discover spaces of doubt in an effort to collectively consider their multiple meaning, modes, aesthetics, and impacts. The conference brings together graduate students from a range of disciplines and from institutions across North America to present work that explores the relationships of doubting as a lived reality, a historical moment, a liminal state, a political position, and an ethical imperative. Panels include: Doubtful Subjects, Paradoxes of Visibility, Material Uncertainty, and Geographies of Doubt.
