The New School | 63 Fifth Avenue
The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry, a new summer program at the New School for Social Research, will open part of its programming to the public – a series of lectures taught by the inaugural faculty cohort of Patricia Williams (Columbia University), Simon Critchley (NSSR), and Talal Asad (CUNY).
"Anatomy of Short Lives: A Meditation on the Repetitions of Regret"
Patricia Williams's lecture will examine the operative logic of self-propelling, vibrantly variable, and ultimately death-dealing discourses of racialized threat.
About the Institute:
The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry (ICSI) is designed to provide advanced graduate students and junior faculty from around the world with the opportunity to spend one week at the New School’s campus in Greenwich Village working closely with some of the most distinguished thinkers shaping the course of contemporary social inquiry. Each of these scholars will teach a week-long seminar on a foundational thinker or topic of contemporary concern in a series of hands-on, intensive, and intimate sessions.
