We are pleased to announce that the Unit for Criticism is now part of the first international consortium of Critical Theory Programs. This initiative, which is based in UC-Berkeley and Northwestern U will open up new international exchanges and collaborations for faculty and students with interests in critical theory. The consortium also aims to reconfigure the meaning and sites of theoretical production by foregrounding perspectives from the Global South.
This is an exciting development and we will keep you posted on opportunities available through the Consortium.
We are delighted to announce the recipients of the 2017-19 Unit for Criticism & Interpretive Theory Faculty Fellowships.
