5/3/2018
More
"The relationship that has long characterized the domain of language and the domain of image...that boundary is also being eroded and shifted around in a variety of ways and punctuation illustrates that nicely...it hovers between language and image in provocative ways.”

Claudie Massicotte: Trance Speakers

4/5/2018

Ramzi Fawaz: The New Mutants

2/22/2018
More
"A book that can show you how the distinct operations, both the form and the content of particular comics, speak to much wider structures of power, identity politics, and social reality...that, to me, is a strong study.

2/8/2018
More

Trevor G. Smith: Politicizing Digital Space

1/25/2018
More
"This goes back to why Arendt argued that we needed 'public' and 'private.' The 'private' is kind of a refuge from politics. Even though politics is a good thing, you don't want to be in it and doing it all the time because that's exhausting."

Duration:00:54:22

12/28/2017
More
"Until we're able to speak about this racism as something that's coming out of 'us' -- and here I'm speaking particularly as a white person -- out of our culture more broadly, then we don't have a chance of really trying to handle what this persistent racism is."

Duration:00:47:36

12/7/2017
More

More
"My anxiety about the future of critical theory is partly that if it doesn't figure out a way to engage more with other kinds of critical traditions--postcolonial theory is one example, but also feminist theory and queer theory and critical philosophy of race--then I worry about the extent to which this project has a robust future."
