The 1960s, In Theory

Location: UC Irvine / HG 1030 | Time: June 5, 2018 / 12:30–2:00 PM

In the 50th anniversary year of May ’68, three of our most notable critical theorists whose contributions to theory in the context of different if related colonial contexts all took off in that decade will engage in a discussion of “The 60s, in Theory”. Their discussion will range across reflections on the 60s in and from different contexts, on the theoretical turn from the 60s on, on the politics of these turns and re-turns, and on their connections to each other then and since.
