Philosophy

Interaction between affect and language subject of lecture

“There is no thinking outside language,” says Marcia Morgan. “Language is always in transit, exile, and dispossession.”

Professor of philosophy at Muhlenberg College, she will explore the interaction between affect and language as articulated in the works of Theodor W. Adorno and Julia Kristeva in her free public lecture, “The Affect of Dissident Language and Aesthetic Emancipation at the Margins,” Thursday, March 10, at 5:30 p.m. in room 2173, Chrysler Hall North.

Dr. Morgan says the two philosophers are united in their belief in emancipation through art.
