“Interiorities: Reflecting Subjectivity and Sociality” brings together doctoral students and scholars from both coasts to reflect on how social life conditions the formation, exposure, and expression of selfhood, while paying close attention to the irreducible features of subjective experience. Through a series of panel discussions, lectures, and a reading session, we hope to encourage the dialogue between disciplines across the humanities and interrogate art forms and discursive modes that bring into focus the meeting of subjects and worlds.
