Oct. 12 Rei Terada: “Pasolini’s Acceptance”
Professor Terada considers Pasolini’s turn away from Italian politics in his late prose and Salò, and the alternative models of working-through and legibility subsequently engendered in the “absence” of hope for renewal. Professor Terada’s books include Feeling in Theory: Emotion after the “Death of the Subject” (Harvard, 2001) and Looking Away: Phenomenality and Dissatisfaction (Harvard, 2009).
Rei Terada is Professor of Comparative Literature, UCI
