The Late Design and style of Educational Disciplines

How does a self-control like musicology age? What patterns of thoughts around time calcify into dogma and which applications start off to rust from un-use? How many forking paths can a willpower take right before it runs out of fuel? What if there just is practically nothing still left to say and ultimately no one particular inclined to pay attention? Is it feasible for a willpower to someday stop? What can be completed to put together for these an ending?

Participants in this symposium will orbit these kinds of concerns as they explore “late fashion” ways inside of humanities disciplines.

Musicology grants a powerful standpoint on these problems as it teeters on the edge of sizeable disciplinary rupture and institutional precarity—a canary in the coal mine, so to sing. This symposium begins to articulate a concept outward sure to the humanities disciplines in our close organization, a sign across the bow for people who will hear. Participants will question aloud about how some of these endings may possibly invigorate a extra just and passionate network of questions than the types at present occupying our interest. This is a hopeful job. Endings are a present.

This fifty percent-day symposium starts with a seminar discussion orbiting readings on late type by Arthur C. Danto, Bret Easton Ellis, and Edward Mentioned, and concludes with a panel presentation of a new ebook job by Jamie Currie, Joanna Demers, and Jake Johnson, moderated by Tiffany Naiman.
