"Critical Conversations" is a monthly lunch series organized by the English Department for 2021-22. In each session, a panel of four faculty members give flash talks about their current research as related to a broad theme. Presentations are followed by lively, cross-disciplinary conversation with the audience.

Presentations begin at 12:30pm, followed by discussion. The session concludes at 2:00.

Cathy Sanok will explore what kind of resources premodern conceptualizations of citizenship might offer to contemporary ones.

Raevin Jimenez will discuss the cannibals of early 19th century Southeastern Africa and colonialism.

Erin Brightwell will turn to 20th century Japanese Empire and "soft power".

Mrinalini Sinha will make a case for the continuing political and critical purchase of the concept of citizenship.
