Returning to Stuart Hall: Dialogue, Critique, Practice

Year of Funding: 

WIRED (Women Investigating Race, Ethnicity, and Difference) has planned a series of events in 2014-15 to honor the life and work of Stuart Hall (1932-2014), a public intellectual whose commitments to interdisciplinary dialogue and social justice resonate with our mission.

Through a symposium, public lectures, workshops, and a books-in-print event, we will critically engage Hall's legacy in the academy and beyond, specifically his notion of cultural studies as a site of creative practice and political intervention. Using the concept of return, we intend to discuss recursive forms of history and temporality, the nature and shape of modernity, and the uncertainty and risk inherent in cultural and political praxis.
