Sequel as Revolution: Taylor Mac's Queer Time

Reading between Freedom and Necessity

Matthew Garrett • Wesleyan University

October 7 @ 6 P.M.
Daniel Family Commons, Usdan University Center

Mostly the culture of literacy has taken shape within a realm of freedom, seemingly distant from the needs of the body and the demands of sustenance. At the same time, the world represented within so much of the world's narrative, both truth and fiction, has been saturated in struggle and deprivation. We will try to make some sense of this juxtaposition, freedom on one side and necessity on the other: in particular, the pull of past or residual forms of unfreedom in the sphere of cultural representation, within and against new or emerging expressions of emancipation, themselves accompanied or countered in modern times by ever-novel styles of exploitation.

All lectures begin at 6 p.m. and are held in the Daniel Family Commons (located in the Usdan University Center) unless otherwise noted.
