Please join us for a conversation between Doris Sommer, Professor of Roman Languages and Literature; Professor of African and African American Studies; and Director of the Cultural Agents Initiative at Harvard University and Octavio Zaya, Director of Atlántica, Journal of Art and Thought and curator of documenta 11. Topics of discussion include key issues that Sommer addresses in her recent book The Work of Art in the World: Civic Agency and Public Humanities (2014) including pedagogy and activism, the responsibility of intellectuals, educational alternatives, the culture of protest, art and accountability, the usefulness of theory, and Schiller and the idealist hangover.
