Event Description

How do scholars write criticism about the moment they're living in? Join the students of English and African American Studies 574, “The Present Moment” (Fall 2017), for a discussion of the contemporary as both object of study and method of analysis. Speakers will address objects that undertake their own projects of social, political, and aesthetic critique, and will draw on critical and theoretical writing from authors both in and outside of the academy. The conference is free and open to the public; all are welcome to attend.
