Every year, during the spring semester, the certificate program holds an interdisciplinary conference devoted exclusively to Critical Theory and its practical applications. This conference has brought hundreds of scholars from around the world to present their research at the Graduate Center. Keynote Speakers have recently included Stephen Greenblatt (Harvard), Homi Bhabha (Harvard), Jonathan Culler (Cornell), Anne Carson (New York University), Kaja Silverman (University of Pennsylvania), Joshua Landy (Stanford), Rosalind Krauss (Columbia), D.A. Miller (Berkeley), and Martin Hägglund (Yale).
