About the event

Join us for a reflection on the current state of critical theory. In a dialogue about theorizing affect and capacity, Jasbir K. Puar and Patricia T. Clough will explore the way they came to think about these concepts, and how their personal relationships, especially their friendship with each other, contributed to their thinking. What is the role of friendship in producing books, book series, special journal issues, and shared work with students? How shall we value this labor? How does academia encourage or thwart the love of work, and the love of friends?

Cosponsored by the Center for the Study of Women and Society.
