The Good Look: Victorian Visual Ethics and Aberrant Bodies

Thu, Oct 3, 2019 (All day)
397 Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building
By invitation only

A manuscript workshop convened by Natalie Prizel, Haarlow-Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in English and the Humanities Council. With chapters on Dickens, Eliot, non-fiction prose, and Pre-Raphaelite painting, among other subjects, "The Good Look" articulates a new understanding of the ethics of encounter at the intersection of Victorian aesthetic and ethical thought--particularly that of John Ruskin--and contemporary discourses of disability and queer theory. Sponsored by the Society of Fellows.
