Scholars @ Hallwalls

Hallwalls is the perfect setting for a sixth year of the Humanities Institute's Scholars@Hallwalls lecture series. These monthly presentations feature one fellow's research in an engaging lecture with lively follow-up conversation. This year's lineup highlights the interdisciplinary range of humanities research at UB.

Talks are on Friday afternoons at 4 pm and are free and open to the public. Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres are served. Please join us for any or all of the Scholars@Hallwalls talks!

The Sensation of Time: Reading Water with Roni Horn and Clarice Lispector

French professor Fernanda Negrete will show how Horn's installation "Library of Water" (2007 – present) and Lispector's poetic meditation Água viva (1973) propose an aesthetic reading practice that exposes us to what Gilles Deleuze (drawing Paul Cézanne's quest to paint "the instant of the world") defined as the sensation of time. Aesthetic time, Negrete will show, emerges for the reader as an effect of perspectival decentering that dissolves the opposition between self and world to rethink intersubjectivity fluidly.
