New Haven, Connecticut, 2016

Tom Wiscombe to participate in a round table discussion with Ferda Kolatan (moderator)- Graham Harman- Ariane Lourie Harrison- David Ruy- Elaine Scarry-

This symposium, convened by Mark Foster Gage, explores emerging positions that cast aesthetics as the primary discourse for social- ecological- and political engagement. In contrast to commonly held opinions that these issues are antithetical to the aesthetic- recent work in aesthetic theory across multiple disciplines suggests that such political and ontological problems may be best addressed as aspects of aesthetic experience.
