CUAG Lunchtime Lecture: “Radical Politics and Forms of Listening”

Wednesday, 23 April 2014, 12:15 p.m.

Each semester, we showcase a Carleton faculty member whose academic interests complements one of our current exhibitions, and invite them to give a talk on their research.
Inspired by Sharon Hayes’ installations and video works that explore student activism in 1960s and 70s America in Sharon Hayes: Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening, this Lunchtime Lecture will feature Justin Paulson (Department of Sociology and Anthropology) speaking about his research on radical politics and social movement history.

Bring your lunch, the gallery will provide coffee and tea, and we’ll all learn something new! 12:15 p.m. – 1 p.m.

Justin Paulson teaches social theory and social movement history in the department of Sociology and Anthropology and in the Institute of Political Economy at Carleton.  His recent publications include “The Uneven Development of Radical Imagination” (Affinities 4:2), a rebuttal to “The Left After Politics” (Studies in Political Economy 89, co-authored with Rebecca Schein) and an edited collection, Capitalism and Confrontation (Red Quill).
