Para-Academia & Theory Fiction | Session 4: Complicitous Continuums: The Horrors of the Cosmicist Earth, facilitated by Ben Woodard
Saturday, September 17 at 1:00pm at Observatory [You must enter through the blue front doors on Union Street. Push buzzer #1E.]
This course will explore the Geo-philosophical earth as theory-fictional node for explaining a cosmicism/universalism in which the outside is continuously advancing upon all purportedly firm grounds and solid bodies. Weirdness, as in the weird of weird fiction and the darkness of dark romanticism and the crumble of the gothic, will be explored as the intrusion of the non-local upon the local, arguing that all stability is in fact subject to continuous degradation, shift, and collapse.
