Slought and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures are pleased to present "The Modernist Wound," a conversation about injury as an aesthetic strategy, on Monday, March 26, 2018 from 6-8 pm. The event will feature a discussion between Ian Fleishman (Assistant Professor of German, UPenn), Nora Alter (Professor of Film and Media Studies, Temple University) and Jean-Michel Rabaté (Professor of English & Comparative Literature, UPenn), moderated by Naomi Waltham-Smith (Assistant Professor of Music, UPenn). The program will build upon Fleishman's new book, An Aesthetics of Injury: The Narrative Wound from Baudelaire to Tarantino, which exposes wounding as a foundational principle in literary and filmic modernism.
