Literature and Political Thought: A Symposium
Hertford College invites you to a symposium on the connections between literature and political thought. The day will address a number of related themes: the civic value and limitations of literature; how political practices – from democracy to liberalism – condition or imperil certain forms of art; the role of the literary within political argument; the extent to which literature functions as a distinctive form of political thought.
Speakers: Amanda Anderson (Brown), David Bromwich (Yale), Richard Bourke (Cambridge); Helen Small (Oxford); Sophie Smith (Oxford); David Womersley (Oxford)
All talks will take place in the Principal’s Lodgings at Hertford College, Oxford. Please contact David Dwan for further information:
