BU Colloquium on Literature, Philosophy, & Aesthetics

The BU Colloquium on Literature, Philosophy, and Aesthetics is an annual meeting of literary scholars and philosophers whose work reflects upon the problems and themes shared across their different disciplines. How have art, criticism, and philosophy both adjoined and rebuked one another? What is the status of the ancient quarrel today?

The 2021 colloquium is devoted to the theme that we had originally planned for the election year of 2020: Art, Democracy, and Public Life. A schedule will be announced this summer.
