[15 Déc] Baudelaire’s Afterlives
"Baudelaire’s Afterlives: Immortality and its Discontents"
Friday 15th December 2017
One-day symposium at National University of Ireland, 49 Merrion Square Dublin 2
Public roundtable discussion at Hugh Lane Gallery, Parnell Square North, Dublin 1
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the death of Charles Baudelaire, this symposium will explore how Baudelaire’s work has outlived him and to investigate how he lives on in contemporary culture?
Which of the multiple dimensions of Baudelaire’s career have continued (or ceased) to resonate in the years since his death, and which have taken on new relevance today? In the early decades of the twenty-first century, how alive, or how undead, is Baudelaire?
