Subject: the sublime and education


I am an academic from Malta, and I'm very much interested in Lyotard, particularly the aesthetic and educational implications of his writings.  I am currently doing some research on his notion of the sublime; of course, a lot has been written about the subject, but I haven't found much about any possible relationship between the sublime in Lyotard and education (for instance, the sublime and the limits of knowledge, reason, understanding, or educational assessment).  I came across your site and I think it is very interesting...perhaps someone out there can give me a hand with my search?  Any ideas?

I'll also be visiting Virginia this Summer (as a fellow at the VCCA in Amherst county); is there a place in Virginia where your organisation is based?  Are visitors welcome?
