Manuel Davenport Keynote Address: Mary Devereaux
Mary Devereaux, Ph.D., is a philosopher and bioethicist at University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Much of her work in aesthetics is dedicated to feminist issues and moral critiques of the power of art. Articles such as “Beauty and Evil: The Case of Leni Riefenstahl’s ‘Triumph of the Will’”; “ Moral Judgments and Works of Art: The Case of Narrative Literature.”; “Oppressive Texts, Resisting Readers and the Gendered Spectator: The New Aesthetics,” ; “More Than ‘Meets the Eye’. Autonomy and its Feminist Critics.”; “ Protected Space: Politics, Censorship, and the Arts” have influenced a generation of scholars interested in film theory, literary theory and feminist aesthetics.
