Conceived and organized by Anne A. Cheng. Jointly sponsored by the Department of English and the Center for African American Studies.
Critical Encounters brings together like minds from unlike disciplines in a series of open dialogue before an audience of campus community and the public. The series promotes reflections and debates concerning race, cross-cultural translation, and issues of social justice at the intersection of art, theory, culture, and politics. In bringing together artists and thinkers from disciplines that do not traditionally talk to one another who nonetheless share similar preoccupations, this series of dialogues aims to provide opportunities for unexpected, synergistic exchanges. It also aims to engage departments and units across campus in cross-disciplinary collaborations.
