Event description

Description

While clearly having a central significance in the visual and plastic arts, ‘abstraction’ also figures widely in the discourses of the humanities. But is this not in fact more of a secret life, or something even that is hidden in plain sight…?

In this seminar, Professor Jeff Wallace draws from a current research project to highlight some of the questions raised by the deployment of ‘abstraction’ in literary studies and in critical theory. His conclusions concern the way in which abstraction might help us to think through the relations between the human and the inhuman.
