What is the Modern Critical Theory lecture series?

Each fall the Unit for Criticism sponsors a series of lectures intended to introduce graduate students to foundational texts and thinkers of Modern Critical Theory. These lectures, which usually move from Kant and Hegel to Queer Theory and Postcolonial Studies, generally take place on Tuesday evenings from 5:15 - 6:45 pm. Lecturers include specialists from on and off campus. The series is open to all graduate students. Although the series is associated with for-credit seminars, typically offered through the English Department and the Program in Comparative and World Literature, the series itself does not require registration.
