English Graduate Students' Association Colloquium: FRENZY

Nov 9, 2012, 9-6PM

Keynote Speaker

Dr. David Toews
Sociology, York University
“What is Frenzy Today?”
3:30pm - 4:50pm

This year’s EGSA Colloquium explores representations of FRENZY—and frenzied representations. Agitated states have become more visible in our technologically-driven culture, and yet frenzy is a historically pervasive phenomenon that at once invites and confounds theoretical inquiry. This interdisciplinary graduate student conference examines compelling, influential, and/or problematic outbursts. Are these moments of crisis? Or can we conceive of frenzy as a generative force?
