another academic opportunity: TAKE A COURSE WITH PROFESSOR JACK HALBERSTAM
WILD THINGS: QUEER AND FEMINIST THEORY AT THE END OF THE WORLD
Halberstam ANNOUNCEMENT (information about the course, contains schedule and readings)
Course admission is by application only, and it only meets 3 days, but WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY.
Description (from the application, linked above): Strange weather, zombie apocalypse, never ending war, ruthless capitalism, organ harvesting, drones, and the list of threats to human existence goes on. While a general air of intensifying crisis hangs heavy around us, there are also signs of new life, new modes of protest, different imaginaries of collectivity and distinctly post-human forms of belonging, being and becoming. In this seminar, we will range across theories and narratives of the end of the world, past and present, to look for feminist and queer insights into endings, beginnings and the wild in between.
The class will meet 3 times over two weeks. Come as often or as infrequently as you like. Drop in, drop out, drop by, drop everything. When you come, bring something to share – a snack, a poem, an idea, a reading, a passage, a concept, a fantasy, a vision.
Friday April 10, 12 pm – 2 pm;
Wednesday April 15, 11 am – 1 pm;
Friday April 17, 1pm – 3pm
