Critical Perspectives Visiting Talk: Rita Felski, “On Resonance”


Zoom / Virtual

March 23, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

Rita Felski, the John Stewart Bryan Professor of English at the University of Virginia, will present a lecture, “On Resonance,” at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23, via Zoom.

Could the idea of resonance offer another slant on what’s defended, though also derided, as a “love of literature,” while also clarifying how critical theory can animate and captivate? Felski’s talk draws out affinities between the ideas of sociologist Hartmut Rosa and two novels—Stoner, by John Williams, and Theory, by Dionne Brand—that capture moments when words reverberate and come alive, portraying the transformative aspects of intellectual life as well as the alienating aspects of academic institutions.
