In this keynote presentation, Faye Hammill crosses geographic, cultural, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries with a view to inquiring into the changing social positioning of “sophistication” in both mainstream and minority cultures. A term once associated with “falseness,” indeed “perversity,” has now changed, and often  points to the qualities of “discrimination” and “refinement.”
Respondents: Jennifer Andrews and Peter Schwenger.
