Spheres of Interest: Experiments in Thinking and Action Spring 2007
5:00pm, free and open to the public
Spheres of Interest, the Graduate Lecture Series provides an opportunity for students to engage with the thoughts and productions of an international array of guest participants from a variety of fields. One of the goals of the series is to provoke students to imagine unfamiliar forms of perceiving and creating through exposure to challenging ideas concerning how different forms of contemporary and historical creative production can be conceived in the present. The guest participants will not invite smooth or easy receptions to the aural, visual, textual, and spatial operations, with which they are engaged, but in contrast, will raise questions from the perspective of producers and analysts about present and past forms of being and production.
