SEAC-JSSE workshop on “Exception”
Aix en Provence, 6-8 June 2019
The term “exception” has never been elaborated into a concept nor has it been appropriated by criticism or theory in order to define one the invariants of modern aesthetics, as “subversion,” “revolution” or even “avant-garde” have been. And yet, it may offer a different purchase on some of the persistent traits of modernity and thus bring us to rethink the poetics of the modern, as well as literature’s and art’s relation to history, specifically in its moments of crisis. More details and call for papers here.
