April 1, 2013
Time:Noon-1:15 p.m.
Description:The Department of Anthropology and the Humanities Institute present a talk by Lauren Berlant titled "The Commons: Affect and Infrastructure." Berlant is George M. Pullman professor of English, University of Chicago.

There's a romantic story about the common, a pastoral story of nature and human creativity; and an antipastoral one of rage, exploitation, theft, loss, mourning and radical resistance. At the same time there is ambivalence toward being in common, as properties of relationality and relations of property and intimacy encounter each other frictionally. This segment of a longer work focuses on Waldo Emerson, Juliana Spahr and Liza Johnson's attempts to risk making and inhabiting the unbearable commons, addressing the sacrifices a nonuniversalist common might entail, including the priority of the human (the persistence of the inhuman, the aspiration to the impersonal, the recognition of activity in all things), on the other side of which is an optimism about aesthetics and, in particular, an ethics and politics of analogy.
