From the web announcement:

“Give me Vesuvius’ crater for an inkstand!” Ishmael’s imagining of what he needs to write Moby Dick testifies to the largeness of scale of Melville’s work, which crosses oceans, spans centuries, invents genres, and imagines new forms of life. “Melville’s Worlds” responds to this largeness of scale, exploring his work across a variety of discourses and disciplines: legal, political, ecological, sociological, and aesthetic. Speakers will consider why Melville has become the writer for our time, a time dominated by catastrophic climate change, political instability, new material forms, and a renewed interest in the possibilities of the aesthetic.
