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 2022 colloquium is devoted to a theme that has long had–and continues to have–a deeply contentious status in the study of the arts: Autonomy.

The colloquium is free and open to the public. Schedule and more details will be announced in the next few months.
