CLIFF 2017: Undisciplined Readings: Rethinking Practices and Methods

Keynote: Ilya Kaminsky
Saturday, March 18, 2017
9:00 AM-5:00 PM
West Conference Room Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
Keynote: March 17 5:30-7pm Rackham Assembly Hall

How do we read texts, films and other objects? How do our methods reflect the intended and unintended audiences of a work, and how do they inform our interpretations? What do our readings include, and what do they exclude? In this conference, we aim to reflect on and reconsider our roles as readers, as well as the educational and political implications of our reading practices.

CLIFF is organized entirely by graduate students in the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. It has been the central event of our department since its inception in 1996. With its dedication to interdisciplinarity and intellectual rigor, it embodies the values that form the basis of Comparative Literature. Each year, the conference brings together faculty and graduate students across different institutions, disciplines and fields of interest, in order to facilitate a productive and meaningful dialogue on that year’s theme
