Critical Practices Unit (CPU) on Robotics and Performativity

November 19 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In this interdisciplinary and practice-based group, with support from the Vice President for the Arts, we hope to stage collisions between the various humanistic and technological discourses through performances, art-objects, interactive media, and “critical making” projects, which, in some sense to be explored, materialize critical reflection. In fidelity to these objects’ disobedience to any specific field, we want to stress that CPU is for those in the humanities, sciences, and arts. These conversations—spanning computation, performance, race, personhood, gesture, interaction, and…

Renaissance Monolingualism and the City: A Discussion with Melih Levi

November 20 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Melih Levi is a PhD student in the Comparative Literature department. He studies the rise of plain style during the mid-Tudor period of the Renaissance and modern revivals of plainness as a rhetorical strategy to escape modernist orthodoxies. The idea of monolingualism as a governing ideology offers powerful insights into language, and identity in the aftermath of nationalist outbursts.
