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 7:30 - 9:00 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.
