Description

If tomorrow is another day, which and whose?   

Singular or plural, definite or indefinite, "future" remains an angular index to time experiencing its own edges and gray turbulences. Join us for a conversation on what runs through radical writing, feminism and black futures, bringing together Saidiya Hartman, Erica Hunt, Dawn Lundy Martin and Claudia Rankine, all of whose visionary writings exemplify the practice of such a radically self-present revolutionary imaginary. Kyoo Lee will join in as a moderator.  

This event is free and open to the public, but to attend, please RSVP here.

Co-sponsored by mp3: Poetry, Philosophy, Performativity research team as part of the Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research from the Center for the Humanities at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
