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 2024 colloquium will be held on November 8-9, and is devoted to a theme to a central theme both in criticism and across the arts: Knowledge, Perception, and Judgment.

The colloquium will be taking place in room 325 of the BU School of Theology (745 Commonwealth Ave., Boston). It is free and open to the public.
