Dr. Joshua Gunn

Friday, February 2, 2018
Location: Storm-Hall (SH) 101
Time: 2:00 p.m.

Dr. Joshua Gunn is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the category of the ineffable, and in particular, how people use and abuse signs and symbols to negotiate ineffability. His attention to music, religion, and human affective experiences are part of a deeper interest in the limits of human representation and self-understanding. Gunn’s scholarship is indebted to the work of Kenneth Burke, which eventually led him to take-up Marxism, psychoanalysis, and critical theory.
