This event which is sponsored by the UCLA Department of English, will propose that a range of disciplines across the humanities have shared and suggestive investments in questions of hatred. We will explore hatred as a human emotion not as it is simply decried or enabled in particular works of art, but as it is in different ways put to use. In particular, we will explore the uses of hatred in criticism: of art, literature and culture. The day will bring together scholars and critics in literature and the visual arts, who are also invested in a range of disciplines including psychoanalysis, queer theory, philosophy and anthropology, in order to discuss hatred in, and the hatred of, a range of creative media.

Each presentation will be followed by discussion with the audience, and the day will end with a final roundtable reflection on hatred and the humanities.

Register here to attend the symposium.
