Global Theories of Critique

"Rethinking History of the Present in Palimpsests" with Dr. Asli Igsiz

From the Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, New York University, Prof. Asli Igsiz will be presenting for the annual Global Theories of Critique workshop.

The Global Theories of Critique (GTC) workshop this year revolves around the practice of un-disciplining knowledge. Each speaker will open up the session with the body of theory and/or practice they strive to un-discipline and challenge in their work. Followed by a round-table discussion of the speakers’ work that the participants will read beforehand.

In our December meeting, we will be rethinking the liberal discourses of peace and humanism by looking at the legacies of forced migrations.
