Aesthetics & Politics Lecture Series Fall 2022 Poster

The School of Critical Studies is pleased to announce the Spring 2022 Aesthetics and Politics Lecture Series. The theme for this semester is "Into the Radical Imaginary: Contemporary Perspectives on Art and Struggle." 

Over the last decade, wave after wave of struggle has cracked open the radical social imaginary, aiming for the roots of systems of domination and creating space for liberatory formations to emerge. If another world once more seems possible, what new – and renewed - understandings of aesthetics and politics can help us bring it into being?
