THE ROMANTIC SELF
Morris Eaves and Michael Fischer are team-teaching a year-long course on “The Romantic Self” at the University of New Mexico during 1982-83. The course is about the relationships between romanticism and contemporary critical theory. The first semester, which focuses on the historical contest between neoclassical and romantic theories of art, lays the groundwork for the second semester, which focuses on recent movements in critical theory. Throughout the year, visitors will come to campus to discuss their own work with the class. The visitors include, among others, W.J.T. Mitchell (Univ. of Chicago) in October, Stanley Cavell (Harvard) in November, Northrop Frye (Univ. of Toronto) in February, J. Hillis Miller (Yale) and M.H. Abrams (Cornell) in March. Each visitor will attend two class sessions and deliver a public lecture.
