The Aesthetics of Debt
full name / name of organization:
Special Session / MLA 2013 (Boston)
Seeking papers for a panel exploring the interconnections of aesthetic and economic debt. What exactly does the trope of "literary debt" owe to the economic mind? Are economic narratives, e.g.- the narrative of money as "value itself," indebted to aesthetic principles?
Papers welcome on topics such as the post-collapse relevance of Harold Bloom's theory of literary influence, Marc Shell's deconstructions of the "Art & Money" binary, and Christian Marazzi's notion of the increasingly "linguistic" nature of capital.
