Solitudes/Multitudes, 18th-21st centuries

April 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am - April 25, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

This international, interdisciplinary, bilingual symposium is designed to consider solitude(s) and multitude(s) in tandem, as both historical constructs and present-day issues. Speakers will include colleagues from various units across the UW campus as well as invited scholars from Europe, Canada, and the US. Taking the global Francophone context as a point of departure, we aim to extend the treatment of solitudes/multitudes in time and space to include other cultures, languages, and periods. This symposium will be organized in the form of panels on the following thematic streams:
1. Representing solitudes/multitudes in literature and the arts
2. Theorizing solitudes /multitudes
3. Situating solitudes/multitudes in relation to political and cultural geography
