Desire: From Eros to Eroticism: Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

November 10, Thursday
6:30 pm

Peter Brooks (Princeton University) discusses “Desire at the End.”

Friday, November 11
5 pm

David Konstan (New York University) will examine “Beauty and Desire, or When did Aesthetics Go Astray?”

Keynotes: Peter Brooks and David Konstan

The concept of desire has been the subject of much examination throughout centuries of literature. From the ancient Greek idea of eros to psychological analysis of the subject through contemporary negotiations of love and desire, the interpretation of desire has evolved, but it has always held a central role in literature and discourse.
