Paradox occupies a strange territory in between reason and intuition, involving the simultaneous processes of grasping and letting go of the doxa. As an apparently absurd set of contradictions or oppositions entailing one another, paradox works within and between texts in an infinite number of ways, fascinating thinkers and writers from a variety of disciplines, locations and points in history. This interdisciplinary research conference seeks fresh perspectives on the intersection between paradox and text; how paradox can be deployed in writing; and potential ways it could be harnessed for theoretical or creative gain.
