The distinguished philosopher and feminist, Sandra Laugier, professor of philosophy of language at the Sorbonne, will be giving an informal talk on “Wittgenstein in France” at PAL, on Thursday. I am very much looking forward to welcoming her to Duke!
On April 14, Toril Moi will participate in a colloquium at the Oakley Center at Williams College, Williamstown. The discussion will focus on her (still unpublished) paper “Something that might resemble a kind of love”: Fantasy and Realism in Henrik Ibsen’s Little Eyolf.” For more information, contact The Oakley Center.
On January 9, 2011 Toril Moi will give a paper called “Reading Philosophically: Attention, Adventure, Conviction”. The talk is part of a panel called “Beyond Critique: Reading after the Hermeneutics of Suspicion”. It will take place from 1:45 – 3:00 p.m. in the Platinum Salon C, at the J. W. Marriott hotel. The other panelists are Rita Felski (“Art Works as Nonhuman Actors”) and Sharon Marcus (“What About Ideology?”). The panel will be chaired by Bernard Rhie.
