Theory Seminars

The Theory Seminar meets twice per quarter to discuss article-length texts of shared critical interest within and beyond the Humanities. The theme is biopolitics. Each meeting has a moderator who may offer brief framing comments if s/he wishes, but whose primary role will be to ensure equitable participation among attendees.


Next Meeting: Thursday, May 11, 12-1:30PM: Reading will be from Brian Massumi's new book What Animals Can Teach Us About Politics.

Past Meetings:
Thursday, February 12, 12-1:30PM: Peter Travis, Professor of English led a discussion of his recent article "Aesop's Symposium of Animal Tongues."

Wednesday, April 1, 12-1:30PM: Susan McHugh (University of New England) presented a chapter from her current work.
