Rei Terada, “Pasolini’s Acceptance”
October 12, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
In his late writings, Pasolini claims to give up on Italian politics and his own erstwhile projects. The talk considers Pasolini’s “repudiation” and the questions of periodization it raises. Professor Terada is the author of Derek Walcott’s Poetry: American Mimicry (Northeastern, 1992); Feeling in Theory: Emotion after the “Death of the Subject” (Harvard, 2001); and Looking Away: Phenomenality and Dissatisfaction (Harvard, 2009).
Rei Terada is Professor of Comparative Literature at UC Irvine.
This colloquium is presented by the Center for Cultural Studies with staff support provided by the Institute for Humanities Research. Cosponsored by the Affect Working Group.
