2018 RAW Symposium: Negotiating Tragedy http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220438129?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220438129?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Feb 24
(9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.) Location: Erik Jonsson Academic Center.

The Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association of the University of Texas at Dallas will hold its tenth annual graduate symposium on February 24th at the UT Dallas campus in Richardson, TX. The RAW: Research, Art, Writing conference is organized by and for graduate students, and offers an opportunity for student scholars around the world to share their work and ideas with their peers across the humanities disciplines.

Theme: Negotiating Tragedy

What is the role of art in tragedy? We seek understanding and the ability to cope by channeling frustration, confusion, chaos, and anger into paintings, poetry, and works of fiction. Capturing tragedy on film, be it a still image which isolates a moment in the midst of a mass shooting, or a documentary that attempts to piece together a war we still do not understand, helps us to observe from a safe distance while aligning ourselves with those who were directly impacted. Historical studies of colonialism, the Holocaust, the Stalinist purges, World War I, World War II, and the Long Civil Rights Movement, to name only a very few events, are crucial to our ability to comprehend, and eventually move forward as a global society. On a more individual level, everyday personal tragedies of abuse, depression, drug addiction, and homelessness are all-consuming. How do we negotiate tragedy? In the words of Robert Frost, “I can see no way out but through.” As academics, we must persist in our studies to achieve a higher level of understanding, to cut a path through the tragic, and lead others out.

For more information, visit The Arts & Humanities Graduate Student Association of the University of Texas at Dallas.

The event is open to the public with no registration required
