Does Language Matter Anymore?

Philology, Translation, Criticism

Philology, criticism, and translation are three techniques that reveal the constant importance of language to all forms of humanistic activity and artistic creativity.

This conference is a reminder of the risks that come from forgetting the realities of language and a reminder of these disciplines’ vital role in regulating the relation between meaning and word, between power and value.

1:00 PM Jeffrey Sacks (UC Riverside), “The Philological Thesis: Language Without Ends”

2:00 PM Anita Starosta (Penn State University), “We Are All Migrants! / Migrants Go Home!”

3:00 PM David Golumbia (Virginia Commonwealth University), “The Deconstruction of Philology”

Friday, November 2 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
