>2007 American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference
>April 19 - 22, 2007
>Arts in Academia
>The seminar invites papers that explore the multiple
>interactions between academic scholarship and artistic
>practice. Beyond, or besides, the traditional task of
>interpreting and appreciating verbal and visual works of art,
>the panel investigates in what ways academic/humanistic
>disciplines have engaged and do engage in the arts.
>Among the many possible issues the seminar aims to discuss,
>are the following:
>- In what contexts, if any, academic production cooperates,
>competes or obstructs the work of the artist?
>- To what extent do the goals of scholarship, on the one hand,
>and artistic production and consumption, on the other,
>converge or diverge?
>- If media determines the shape and scope of a message, what
>shape and scope the work of art acquires in the medium of
>- How literary texts portray life in that privileged space,
>the university campus?
>- In a sometimes hyper-intellectualized academic environment,
>what is the place, if any, of an education of the senses?
>The seminar is open to multiple perspectives, for example,
>general reflections on aesthetics, the exploration of
>pedagogical tools to bridge the gap between academic
>departments, or historical analysis of academic practices,
>Comparisons between the artistic and scholarly traditions of
>North America and Latin America are also a possible topic of
>exploration. Papers with a focus on Latin America are
>particularly welcome, as well as papers written in Spanish.
