Event Description

Betrayal and its cognates are burdened with a negative connotation, decried as the destruction of established social, political, cultural or affective ties. Yet the potential for rupture opened up by acts of betrayal also provides opportunities for narratives of change and progress. Along with considering acts of betrayal as they are or have been experienced or portrayed, the conference will consider scholarly interdisciplinarity as its own sort of methodological betrayal—and innovation. What are our responsibilities toward our research subjects and our institutional traditions? What are the risks and rewards of subverting conventional boundaries? Two-day conference organized by the IFS doctoral cohort. With historian Todd Shepard and literary scholar Kaoutar Harchi as keynote speakers.
