As part of our lecture series on the theme of “Public & Private” we are happy to announce a lecture by anthropologist Kathleen Stewart. Stewart’s talk, “Worldings: Scenes of Life in the U.S. Now,” is the second public lecture in our series.
On October 17, Kathleen Stewart, Professor and Chair of Anthropology, University of Texas at Austin, will speak about the forms and sensibilities of contemporary life. The talk draws on Stewart’s many years of ethnographic research in Appalachia, Las Vegas, and Texas. The lecture engages the fields of cultural studies, geography, and American Studies as well as anthropology. A recipient of fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation and The National Endowment for the Humanities, Stewart has given numerous lectures throughout North America and Europe.
The lecture will take place in the Avaya Auditorium, ACE 2.302. The ACE building is located on the southeast corner of Speedway and 24th Street. Parking is available in the nearby garage at 24th and San Jacinto. The lecture is generously sponsored by the Hoffman Lectureship.
