Reading with José Muñoz
February 12 - March 12
This (online) seminar takes up the work of José Esteban Muñoz, a defining figure in queer theory, queer of color critique, and performance studies. We will read excerpts from his three books (Disidentifications, Cruising Utopia, and The Sense of Brown) to explore his key terms and the impact of his thinking on the work of artists and scholars. The intention is to host a conversation for artists, art critics, curators and other art workers who want to better understand the story of his work, and the importance of his interventions. Students/academics who are not artists and who appreciate an artist-centered context are welcome to join. This seminar will be hosted by HRLA member & UC Riverside professor Jennifer Doyle. We will hold three meetings, 11am Saturday Feb 12, 26 and March 12th. To register for this seminar and gain access to our readings, please fill out this form.
This class grows out a project which began as Marxism for Artists. It is intended as a welcoming environment in which people can spend time with the ideas that shape criticism & theory.
