What was the sublime? Miniseminar with Ian Balfour

InterCcECT is hosting a discussion on aesthetics and the sublime!

InterCcECT

Is the sublime so five minutes ago? So two centuries ago? This mini-seminar explores the extraordinarily discontinuous history of the category of the sublime and loaded examples of it proffered by theorists and critics, as well as how the sublime lines up, easily or not, with its aesthetic “others.” The point of departure will be Hegel’s short account of the sublime, considered in conjunction with passages from Adorno, Benjamin, Rancière, Negri, Newman, and Ngai.

Join InterCcECT for “Their Aesthetic Category: What was the Sublime?” led by ultra special guest Ian Balfour. Contact us for the readings.
