Interdisciplinary Talks: Transitions
February 23, 2017 | 4-7pm | Mod Lobby
The concept, transition, has occupied the U.S. American public imagination by way of the election; State-centered debates about civil rights among shifting racial, national, and gender populations; the subjectivities of people who self-identify as trans; questions of the impact of technology on human connection and notions of “the human” itself. More locally, our Institute is a place that is designed to foster transition through artmaking and the critical education that supports practice.
The Equity and Diversity Committee, in partnership with the Office of the Provost, invites you to Interdisciplinary Talks, a series of presentations and conversations centered around concepts we propose as relevant to CalArts and beyond. Our inaugural event is Transitions, and features Roberta Uno (Director of Arts in a Changing America), Shannon Scrofano (Designer), and Evyind Kang (Composer). Douglas Kearney (Critical Studies) will moderate.
