Profile of a Radical

Wednesdays: Dec. 7th, Dec. 21st, Jan 11th, Jan 25th, Feb 8th, & Feb 22nd

Profile of a Radical is an ongoing study group. Each week we will profile a different radical, alternating between living and dead. This includes guest speaker/ guest workshops. Weeks that honor “dead” radicals will feature close readings of radical literature (Sylvia Wynter, Marylin Frye, Monique Wittig, etc.) Discussions with each “living” radical will follow a reading that we can apply to her work, though the radicals work in every different sphere.
Please RSVP with Daviel at [email protected] if you’d like to attend!
