Last November, we wrote (in this post) about an event that Toril Moi was planning for this March, at her new Center for Philosophy, Arts, and Literature (PAL) at Duke University. Planning has progressed since we first wrote about this event, and Prof. Moi has now organized what looks to be an incredibly exciting 2-day symposium on the visual arts. The schedule of talks and discussions is reproduced below. For more information about this and other events at PAL, please visit the Center’s website by clicking here.
