Carolyn Levine | Lecture Title TBA
Bio: Caroline Levine has spent her career asking how and why the humanities and the arts matter, especially in democratic societies. She argues for an understanding of forms and structures as essential both to understanding links between art and society and to the challenge of taking meaningful political action. Lately, Levine has been writing about literature and precarity, infrastructural justice, the trouble with anti-instrumentality, and the need to focus on institutions as sites of social change.
