This conference was one of my firsts and I had such a great time putting together my paper on play within the work of Adorno. I’ve long been interested in his aesthetic for writing alongside that of Cixous and this gave me a great platform within which to explore. Alan Bass gave a fantastic keynote and I also really enjoyed my return to Southern California.
