Do not RSVP - not a CFI Austin event.
The Humanities Institute at the University of Texas at Austin continues its lecture series on the theme of “Public & Private” with a lecture by anthropologist Kathleen Stewart. The talk, entitled “Worldings: Scenes of Life in the U.S. Now,” will take place in the Avaya Auditorium, ACE 2.302, on October 17 at 7pm.
Professor and Chair of Anthropology here at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Stewart is internationally recognized for her work on the forms and sensibilities of contemporary life. The talk draws on her many years of ethnographic research in Appalachia, Las Vegas, and Texas, and has implications for what Stewart calls “a politics of affective life.” The lecture engages the fields of cultural studies, geography, media studies, and American Studies as well as anthropology. A recipient of fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation and The National Endowment for the Humanities, Stewart is the author of A Space on the Side of the Road: Cultural Poetics in an "Other" America (Princeton University Press, 1996), and Ordinary Affects (Duke, 2007).
The Avaya Auditorium is in the ACE
building on the UT campus. The ACE building is located on the southeast corner of Speedway and 24th
Street. Parking is available nearby in the garage at 24th and San Jacinto.
