TODAY! 11/17 at 6PM Wendy Brown Lecture

CHID student Blake Barnett has organized a visit to campus by theorist Wendy Brown. He has also organized a 2-credit study group (CHID 496H) which will do close readings of her work in preparation for a small workshop with Brown. He has also organized a large public lecture on November 17th in Kane 120 at 6pm. In this talk, Wendy Brown, author of Walled States, Waning Sovereignty (2010) and Regulating Aversion: Tolerance in the Age of Identity and Empire (2006) among many other books, offers a theoretical analysis tracing how neoliberalism shapes agency and how that impacts political possibilities for leftist projects.
