Lynne Huffer

Lynne Huffer is Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Philosophy at Emory University. Known for her trilogy on Foucault’s ethics of eros, Foucault’s Strange Eros (2020), Are the Lips a Grave? (2013), and Mad for Foucault (2010), her most recent work explores ethics of living and extinction in the era of the Anthropocene.

Her residency at Bryn Mawr introduces both her forthcoming book, These Survivals: Autobiography of an Extinction, and her larger project of interdisciplinary experimentation in philosophy, poetry, and the visual arts, realized through a largescale, ongoing word/image collage installation, which will be created and displayed in the Bryn Mawr Campus Center March 21 and 22. Drawing from poetry, philosophy, geology, environmentalism, film, and other fields of research and practice, Huffer generates and juxtaposes fragments of thought in an immersive, interactive, and reparative engagement with the beauty and devastation of our time.

This residency is co-sponsored by Special Collections (LITS), the Friends of the Bryn Mawr College Libraries, the Center for Visual Culture, and the Program in Museum Studies.
