Amy Elias delivered two talks at the University of Pittsburgh on April 1, 2016. The talks were part of a year-long seminar series “Coevality: Global Ethics in a Time of Total Change” that is hosted by the Pittsburgh’s Global Studies Program. Elias gave two talks.
The first, titled “The Temporality of Dialogue,” was based on her own current book research on the ethics and aesthetics of dialogue, which she is rethinking in relation to current arts practices across the visual, literary, and media arts. Elias recently delivered a version of this paper to the Contemporary Arts and Society Research Seminar at the University of Tennessee Humanities Center. Elias’s second talk, delivered with Christian Moraru from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, was based on her newly published , co-edited essay collection, The Planetary Turn: Relationality and Geoaesthetics in the Twenty-First Century.
