Spring 2020 Lecture Series | The Allegorical Resonance of Alchemical Affect

SPRING 2020 LECTURE SERIES: THE ALLEGORICAL RESONANCE OF ALCHEMICAL AFFECT

Each speaker might be seen as engaging with these terms in different ways.

Allegory as allowing interpretations that have the possibility of giving form to the immaterial while revealing hidden meanings.

Alchemy as a forerunner of chemistry, encompassing the recognition that serendipity as a chance operation can lead to unforeseen outcomes.

Affect as a verb generative of an experience, feeling, or emotion often in relation to compassion and empathy.

Resonance as the quality of being resonant, which creates a lasting effect and might be productive of transformation.
