Martin Donougho is professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina with a cross-appointment in comparative literature. Donougho specializes in German aesthetics and has contributed numerous chapters, articles, and encyclopedia entries to a variety of anthologies and journals in the fields of philosophy, literature, aesthetics, and art criticism. Forthcoming is a translation of Hegel’s 1823 Lectures on the Philosophy of Art with Oxford University Press. Donougho’s project at the Clark—"Discriminating Aesthetics: On the Formation of Discourse About Art"—follows three narrative lines: a genealogy of aesthetic distinction, the explication of a specifically Romantic aesthetic, and deconstructive critiques of art and aesthetics.
