Logic and Literary Form Conference

Conference/Symposium | April 14 | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. | 220 Stephens Hall

 Department of English

Our conference on Logic and Literary Form promises to bridge this chasm by convening scholars working at the interdisciplinary juncture of literary studies, philosophy, and the history of science in order to investigate the historical, conceptual, and analogical connections between literary and logical form. The conference will include a range of subfields from literary history to philosophical aesthetics, and will transect several periods from medieval developments in logic, rhetoric, and grammar through the articulation and rigorization of symbolic logic in the 19th and 20th centuries. The conference will feature keynotes by a literary scholar and philosopher, and a poetry reading.
