Description

West Court, Clare Hall, Herschel Road, Cambridge

 

Convenors: Gillian Beer, Malcolm Bowie and Beate Perrey

Art is implicated in all our lives, whether or not we choose to pursue an interest in music, literature, dance, theatre, film, or the visual arts. But in what ways does art matter in the life of individuals or in that of societies? How much can art offer? And what happens if art ceases to be valued?

The invited speakers have been asked to offer an intervention, reflection, or provocation, rather than an extended paper, and no-one will speak for more than 15 minutes. The day will include ample time for general discussion.

This one-day, interdisciplinary event is part of the New Languages for Criticism project.
