“Rest and the rest: Aesthetics of Idleness” Keynote: Jean Ma, Stanford University, Art & Art History

This conference invites emerging scholars and practitioners in the humanities, arts, and social sciences to consider the ways in which idleness works across cultures. How might the concept of idleness be seen as a space of inquiry and contestation, and how might it become generative and productive? Hosted by the University of Rochester’s Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies, this conference aims to foster an environment for interdisciplinary communication, knowledge exchange, and collaboration. 

This conference is organized by PhD students in the Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester. Please email the conference co-chairs, Amanda Ju and Madeline Ullrich, at vcsconference [at] gmail [dot] com with any questions.
