The Literature and Philosophy Workshop at the University of Chicago is a forum for discussion among graduate students, faculty, thinkers, and writers interested in questions raised at the intersection of philosophy and literature. We work across traditional disciplinary boundaries to encourage a conversation that transcends historical and geographical divisions. Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to: the philosophy of literature, philosophy in literature and literary philosophy, the influence of philosophy on literature and vice-versa, the overlap of philosophy and literature in the intellectual imaginary, intellectual and/or literary exchange between philosophers and literary figures, and hybrid forms of cultural production (e.g. myth). The workshop is in its fourth year and enjoys consistently strong attendance and enthusiastic participation.
